Will the Price be right for Gm-2 of the ALDS ?

EARLY LEAD: The Red Sox have won 12 of the 18 postseason series in which they won Game 1, including 8 of 9 since the start of 2004…When winning Game 1 of the ALDS, they have lost 1 series (1998) and won 4 (2004, ‘07, ‘08, ‘13).

>>> The Red Sox have taken a 2-0 lead in a postseason series 9 times…They went on to win 8 of those, with the lone exception being the 1986 World Series vs. NYM.

>>> The Sox have taken a 2-0 lead in a Division Series 4 times, winning all 4: 2004 vs. ANA (won 3-0), 2007 vs. LAA (3-0), 2008 vs. LAA (3-1), and 2013 vs. TB (3-1).

 

SOX & YANKS: The Red Sox have won each of their last 5 postseason games vs. the Yankees…The only other teams to win 5 consecutive postseason games against the Yankees are the New York Giants (8 from 1921-23) and Detroit Tigers (5 from 2011-12).

 

PRICE CHECK: Tonight’s Game 2 starter, David Price, allowed 0 runs in the 2017 ALDS vs. HOU…After pitching 2.2 scoreless innings in Game 2 at Minute Maid Park (1 H, 1 BB, 2 SO), he threw 4.0 scoreless innings in a Game 3 victory at Fenway Park (4 H, 1 BB, 4 SO).

>>> Price has made 4 quality starts in the postseason, but he received a total of 3 runs of support in those games (teams went 0-4)…Those starts came in the 2010 ALDS (Game 5 vs. TEX), 2011 ALDS (Game 3 vs. TEX), 2014 ALDS (Game 3 vs. BAL), and 2015 ALCS (Game 6 at KC).

>>> In the deciding game of the 2008 ALCS, Price helped lead the Rays to the World Series with 1.1 scoreless innings against the Red Sox in Game 7 at Tropicana Field, marking his only career save at the ML level.
