Boston's Bats Don't Help David Price In Loss Vs. Angels

JC Ramirez rebounded from his shortest career start with six solid innings, and Cameron Maybin doubled home a run and scored another Saturday night as the Los Angeles Angels held off the Boston Red Sox, 6-3.

He and I had a lot of discussions about what his plan was going to be, and he was ready to be activated to pitch somewhere.

In honor of Ortiz's primary position with the Red Sox, the speakers were called "designated roasters".

Ortiz retired previous year at the age of 40, leaving the game as the No. 2 home run hitter in Red Sox history and also in the top 10 in nearly every other major offensive category.

Oh, and an unforgettable ALCS MVP performance in 2004 against the New York Yankees to help lead the Boston Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years.

Friday's game against the Los Angeles Angels is set to begin at 7:10 p.m. but fans are encouraged to arrive earlier for the ceremony.

Boston jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning when Xander Bogaerts hit an RBI double to score Mookie Betts who got on base courtesy of a lead off walk.

"Felt good. Just I didn't make enough big pitches when I needed to", Price said.

Ramirez dropped a two-out, ground-rule double in the ninth to bring the Red Sox within four.

The Boston Red Sox have had a packed two days since returning home from an eight-game road trip.

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (ribs) is in the lineup on Friday.

Los Angeles Angels' Eric Young Jr. "He's everything", Ramirez said. Farrell then got in a heated argument with Miller and was tossed for his first ejection of the season.

TRAINER'S ROOM - Red Sox: INF Josh Rutledge was a pregame scratch with left hip soreness.

"We want to thank you for not the clutch hits, the 500 home runs, we want to thank you for how you made us feel and it's love", Pedroia said, with No. 34 painted into both on-deck circles and cut into the grass in center field. It is the 11th number retired by the Red Sox.

FISTER CLAIMED - The Red Sox have claimed right hander Doug Fister off waivers in a move to provide depth to a rotation that has struggled with injuries.

The Boston Red Sox realized that and retired the No. 34 he wore with them on Friday. Albert Pujols is 4-for-22 with two solo homers against Price, who is 5-5 with a 3.26 ERA in 13 starts versus the Angels.
