ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — After giving up a pair of homers to David Ortiz in the Rays’ Game 2 loss to the Red Sox in the American League Division Series at Fenway Park Saturday night, David Price made his frustration clear.
Not just with the nine hits and seven earned runs the Rays starter gave up over 7⅓ innings, but with Ortiz taking his time getting out of the batter’s box as his eighth-inning homer sailed toward Pesky’s pole.
“He steps in the bucket and hits a homer,” Price said. “And he stares at it to see if it’s fair or foul, I’m sure that’s what he would say. But as soon as he hit it and I saw it, I knew it was fair. Run.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
