'Price'-y Loss By Red Sox; Dominated Again, 5-1

They paid the Price. David, that is. And the "price" is a razor-thin one-half-game edge on first place in the AL East. David Price was Matt Moore-like, delivering the second complete game in three days against the Carmine Hose, beating them, 5-1. Boston got just five hits off the left-hander—only Mike Napolis's 14th HR making any difference, as Boston fell to 19 games over .500—with just 59 games left to play in the season. Felix Doubront again pitched well—going 6 2/3 innings, giving up three earned runs. He just happened to run into a "priceless" performance. Matt Thornton, on the other hand, was abysmal again.
