Red Sox shut down David Price for remainder of season

Mike Yastrzemski Giants

Twenty-four pitchers took the mound in total on Tuesday as the Red Sox needed 11 in a game that tied the Major League Baseball record set on September 15, 2015 in a game between the Rockies (13 pitchers) and Dodgers (11). "You start to understand how much of an impact he had and the numbers that he put up and how essentially unattainable they are in today's game. That doesn't really overwhelm me", he said. "That's what it means to me and being here".

The younger Yaz rose the occasion as his grandfather did so many times at Fenway, hitting a home run in the top of the fourth inning. Among those who are still rounding out their rookie seasons in 2019, he ranks first in home runs and fWAR by a long shot: the White Sox' Eloy Jiménez is second in home runs with 28 dingers, while the Astros' Yordan Álvarez plays second fiddle in fWAR with 3.7 Wins Above Replacement.

The Giants are coming off a three-game set at home vs Miami in which they won two of three by scoring just five runs in three games. Samardzija (11-12) pitched six innings, holding Boston to one run on two hits and four walks.

The Giants outfielder only has 236 more long balls to hit at Fenway to tie his grandfather in career long balls in Boston, so unless he somehow joins the Red Sox during his career, that record looks to be very, very safe from ever being touched.

The Mets began the day four games behind the Cubs and Brewers for the second NL wild-card spot.

"I'm with a Hall of Famer that I grew up trying to impersonate as a hitter as a kid, and there he was in my office", he said.

Pretty cool moment, eh? And speaking of rare occasions, that actually prompted the Fenway faithful to give him a standing ovation - needless to say, a rarity for a visiting player. "That's something we're going to talk about", Cora said.

The team announced Tuesday the results of Betts' MRI, which showed the star right fielder has inflammation in his left foot.
