Price, Kimbrel Struggle In Sox Loss [VIDEO]
The Boston Red Sox could not hold on the win the second game of the series with the Texas Rangers after they gave up four runs in the ninth inning to lose by a score of 7-2.
David Price would again get touched up early on when he surrendered two runs in the first inning. The lefty would settle down to pick up seven more innings on the hill before he was removed with a line of eight hits allowed, one walk, and 10 strike outs.
Craig Kimbrel came into the game in a non-save situation and allowed four runs on three hits without recording a single out before being taken out of the game. Heath Hembree would pitch the final three outs to finish the inning for the Sox.
With the loss Boston drops to 45-38 on the year and fell to three games back of the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East. The Sox also find themselves in in third place after the Blue Jays leapfrogged them in the race.
New AL All-Star Steven Wright will be sent to the hill tonight against Martin Perez with the first pitch scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
