The veteran hurler has battled carpal tunnel syndrome of late and was pummeled for seven runs in his last outing, so this game was an encouraging sign. Valencia almost had a double in the fifth, but got thrown out at second by left fielder Andrew Benintendi (Arkansas Razorbacks), one of several strong defensive plays that helped Price go the distance.

Jonathan Marchessault set the tone just 35 seconds into the game, scoring one of his two goals on the night, while Mark Scheifele tallied twice for the Jets, adding to his awesome post season run of 14 goals scored in 15 games played thus far. "That being said, I don't think we're building any type of trade value, nor helping him progress as a ballplayer, nor is the team really being served by him in this role".

Price (4-4) struck out eight and didn't walk a batter while winning consecutive starts for the first time this season.

Last year, the Sox managed only one streak of eight games with a home run. The Orioles have allowed 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. "It kind of raises some eyebrows as to how they knew and those types of things, but that's all on me".

Bogaerts has six homers this season, which are more than half of what he had all of last season (10).

Semien's drive also left Fenway over the Monster. The Red Sox began their current home-stand by losing two of three against Oakland.

Athletics: Cahill (right shoulder impingement) was reinstated from the 10-day DL before the game and outfielder Jake Smolinski was optioned to Triple-A Nashville. With the PawSox rained out Tuesday and a morning game Wednesday, Pedroia was in Boston.

"He was fantastic", Boston Manager Alex Cora said.


Cora said he hadn't had a chance to talk to Smith.

Cahill hasn't picked up a win on the road - start or relief - since a victory at Colorado on August 20, 2016, a span of 24 games.

"I'm focused on touching the bases and getting my home run", he said. "I haven't played here much".

Swihart is the third catcher behind Sandy Leon and Christian Vazquez, and he has seen action in the outfield and at first base.

In the National Hockey League playoffs the Vegas Golden Knights, the expansion team that's expanding everyone's perceptions of what an expansion team has the potential to be, have taken a two games to one lead over the Winnipeg Jets in the western conference finals after a 4-2 win in the desert last night.

The Baltimore Orioles entered play on Thursday against the Boston Red Sox with a pitiful 13-29 record, "good" for last place in the American League East.

Drew Pomeranz will oppose Cobb on Friday (1-1, 5.47 ERA).

Thursday's game was a makeup for the annual Patriots' Day game scheduled for the morning of Monday, April 16.
