The Rays managed to get one of the runs back after starter David Price surrendered two in the first inning to the Red Sox. However, the Sox offense has proven to be relentless, adding an additional two runs in the third inning. Leading off the frame, David Ross hit a high fly ball off of the Green Monster for a double, then came around to score when Jacoby Ellsbury dunked a ball just over third baseman Evan Longoria for a double of his own. Shane Victorino perfectly placed a ground ball in the hole between third and shortstop, moving Ellsbury to third. Dustin Pedroia then allowed Ellsbury to score, grounding into a 6-4 fielder’s choice. David Ortiz ended the inning by grounding into a 3-6 double play.
Through three innings, the Red Sox have tagged Price for four runs on five hits. The lefty has recorded only one strikeout.
