Price was originally scheduled to throw 85-90 pitches, as noted by the Boston Globe's Peter Abraham. On the bright side, Price was nasty enough to induce four strikeouts.

Price spoke to manager John Farrell on Saturday and they agreed that Price would continue on his rehabilitation assignment and pitch for Triple A Pawtucket on Wednesday.

When Price makes it back to the rotation, there is hope that he can come back and bring a big spark to the team and the pitching staff. Putting him after Porcello could make for a deadly three-headed monster at the top of the rotation. We will not know when he will pitch another rehab start or jump right back up to the majors until after the Boston Red Sox finish their West Coast game against the Oakland Athletics.

"That really kind of got me going and gave me the kick I needed to really try to focus down and put up some zeroes", Gray said.

"I caught him in Chicago", Phegley said. "It's not the way I drew it up, obviously, but to be able to go out there and throw 30-plus pitches in both of those innings and still feel the way I felt after walking off the mound in that second inning is good". He was 2-1 with a 1.55 ERA in five starts for Pawtucket. Lowrie launched Velazquez's 3-2 curveball over the center-field fence for a two-run homer with one out, his fifth shot of the season.

The 2012 American League Cy Young victor opened the second inning by giving up a leadoff homer to Raffy Lopez, who hit a 2-0 pitch over the 371-foot mark in left-center field.

"He looked as good as I've seen him in a very, very long time". The Spartans took a 2-1 lead into the 5th inning before the Huskies tied the game in the bottom of the frame and grabbed the lead for good with two more runs in the 6th. After welcoming his son home on Friday morning, Price flew in to Buffalo.

3B Pablo Sandoval (right knee sprain) began a rehab stint with Triple-A Pawtucket and went 0-for-3 as the designated hitter against Buffalo. "First day after missing a month, I'm happy to be back".

The 2012 World Series MVP with San Francisco is in his third season with the Red Sox; he played just three games previous year with a torn left labrum.
