ampa Bay Rays hope that tren

(SportsNetwork.com) - David Price has been magnificent over his career at Fenway Park. The Tampa Bay Rays hope that trend will continue on Saturday when they try to wrestle home-field advantage away from the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of the American League Division Series. After winning 20 games and the AL Cy Young Award a year ago, Price endured an inconsistent 2013 and ended the year 10-8 with a 3.33 ERA. The left-hander seemed to get better as the season wore on, though, and pitched to a 2.55 ERA over his final five starts. That was certainly the case on Monday when he earned a complete-game win in Texas in a one-game playoff to secure the second wild card spot for the Rays. "During the course of the game, I kept talking to (catcher Jose Molina), and he said he was getting better and better, and I could see that from the side," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "There was no way I wanted to take him out. He was outstanding. I thought his stuff kept getting better." Despite his up-and-down campaign, Price still thrived in Beantown, where he went 2-0 in three starts at Fenway and allowed just three runs in 22 1/3 innings. Hes been terrific over the course of his career there, going 6-1 with a 1.88 ERA in 10 starts. "Its just pitching against the Red Sox or pitching against a team like the Yankees, you know the history behind those franchises," Price said. "You know what theyre capable of doing. Every single year, year in, year out, they are, theyre going to be a postseason team, and you know youre going to have to come with your best. If you come with your "B" game, "B-plus" game, you have a pretty good chance to lose. "Pitching in this ballpark, pitching against that team it makes you want it just a little bit more," Price said. Tampa will need another solid effort from Price if they want to even this best-of-five set at a game apiece. In Fridays Game 1, Boston used 7 2/3 terrific innings from Jon Lester and an offensive barrage to gain the early upper hand in the American League Division Series, as it cruised to a 12-2 win. Lester (1-0) gave up solo homers to Sean Rodriguez and Ben Zobrist that staked Tampa Bay to an initial 2-0 edge, but yielded just one other hit and three walks before exiting to a rousing ovation with two outs in the eighth. The left-hander received ample support from his teammates, with the AL East champs shelling Rays starter Matt Moore (0-1) for eight runs -- seven earned -- and eight hits in the 17-game winners 4 1/3 innings of work. Teams have gone up 2-0 in the ALDS 22 times and advanced in 18 of them. Every Boston regular collected at least one hit, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia finishing 2-for-4 with three RBI, Shane Victorino driving in two runs on a 3- for-4 day and Jonny Gomes producing a two-run double in the rout. "Weve done that all year long," said Victorino. "Its a testament to what we do every day. We grind out at-bats. We play 27 outs." Rookie Wil Myers misplayed a fly ball off the bat of David Ortiz in the fourth inning to open the floodgates for Boston, which scored five times in the frame. "Its one of those ones I saw went up," Myers said. "I waved Desmond off. I called the ball myself. I saw it up there. Its loud out there, so a hand motion, I had the ball, I was under the ball, and I saw Des out of the corner of my eye and backed off. It was a loud crowd today. That was totally my fault. I should have taken more charge out there and caught the ball." Tampa Bays four hits in Game 1 marked its fewest in a playoff game since being held to two hits in Game 2 of the 2010 ALDS versus Texas. On Saturday Boston will hand the ball to righty John Lackey, who was tremendous in his first season back following Tommy John surgery. Lackey was only 10-13, but pitched to a 3.52 ERA and walked just 1.9 per nine innings while throwing 67 percent strikes, a career high. "Im going to be emotional," Lackey said. "Im going to be fired up." Lackey is no stranger to the postseason, as he is 3-4 with a 3.12 ERA in 14 outings (12 starts). Tampa actually beat the Red Sox in seven games back in 2008 to advance to the World Series in the only other postseason series between the clubs. This series will shift to Tropicana Field for Game 3 on Monday.

Paul Millsap scored 20 points to lead six Hawks in double figures and key the decisive surge that helped Atlanta rebound from a 26-point home loss for a 112-87 win over Milwaukee on Saturday night. "We know if we dont put it behind us, we know what can happen," Millsap said. "So, we had to move on to the next team -- especially if you want to win in this league." Millsap scored 14 points during a 24-5 run that started at the end of the second quarter and put Atlanta ahead 73-47 with 8:24 left in the third. The margin grew to 96-64 heading into the fourth and Atlanta beat Milwaukee for the eighth time in their last nine games. "Our focus was to come out and get back to competing," Millsap said. "Guys worked pretty hard out there and the defence was good." Thats what head coach Mike Budenholzer thought after his team won for the third time in four games. "We didnt play last night, but our team didnt hang their heads," he said. "They moved forward." Reserve Louis Williams added 18 points for the Hawks. Shelvin Mack scored nine points starting at point guard for Jeff Teague, who sprained his left ankle during the Hawks 105-79 loss to San Antonio on Friday. It was their season-low in points. Williams alternated with Mack running the offence on Saturday. Brandon Knight scored 27 points for the Bucks, who lost for the 11th time in 12 games. Ersan Ilyasova and Khris Middleton added 11 apiece. While the Hawks worked hard, the Bucks simply didnt. Milwaukee coach Larry Drew, who faced the Hawks for the first time this season after being fired by Atlanta last season, closed the locker room and challenged the Bucks lackadaisical style. "This was a totally, totally unacceptable performance," he said of his 21-minute message. "Do we have anything inside that will allow us to go out and compete at a high level?" John Henson and Caron Butler came off the bench to score 10 points, but it came with the game already decided. "Im going to have to go with the guys that play hard," Drew said. &quoot;Youre not going to play hard? Youre not going to play.dddddddddddd" Henson downplayed the tone of the message. "He just said we got to keep fighting, man," Henson said. "He said hes been in the league for 37 some years and hes seen it all. So, we just got to find that fire in us, to have that pride for the name on the front and the back of our jerseys". Teague hurt his ankle when he landed on Tim Duncans foot late in the second quarter on Friday. Atlanta regained its shooting touch from 3-point range, making 13 of 24 3s after hitting only 2 of 13 attempts against San Antonio. Williams made two of the Hawks four 3-pointers during a 16-9 run late in the first quarter and Mike Scotts 3 capped an 11-3 surge just before the half for a 60-45 lead. DeMarre Carroll scored 12 points in his return to the starting lineup after missing the game against the Spurs with a left hamstring strain. "Once Im on the court, Im on the court," he said. "My mind goes to junkyard dog mode, and I just grind it out. I have to give credit to the training staff. I got treatment like three or four times today." Scott finished with 14 points, Kyle Korver 12 and Elton Brand 10 as the Hawks beat Milwaukee for the fifth consecutive time, the first time theyve done that since a taking six straight from March 8, 1996, to March 7, 1997. Atlanta swept the four-game series last season. "We just tried to come out and compete," Carroll said. "When we let our defence do the talking, our offence flows easily. We were playing unselfish." Giannis Antetokounmpo, playing with a sore back, scored five points for NBA-worst Milwaukee (8-35). Rookie Pero Antic (stress fracture in right ankle) and Carroll already were out before Teagues injury left the Hawks with just 10 players on Friday. Antic had replaced starting centre Al Horford, out for the season with a torn right pectoral. NOTES: Korver was 3 of 4 from beyond the arc, extending his NBA record to 112 consecutive games with a 3-pointer. . Referee Josh Tiven called a technical on the Bucks John Henson for hanging on the net in the first quarter. ... Atlanta was 8 of 16 from 3-point range in the first half.
