This was the last thing the Red Sox needed.

David Price did nothing to get the Sox back on the right track, turning in a demoralizing performance during his team's series finale against the Yankees. The lefty starter lasted just 2 2/3 innings, giving up seven runs on nine hits including home runs by Aaron Judge and Gio Urshela.

Price was ultimately lifted in favor of Darwinzon Hernandez, with the Red Sox carrying a 7-0 deficit at the time.

Prior to the Yankee Stadium start Price had totaled a 6.52 ERA in his four outings since the All-Star break, with hitters managing a .301 batting average and .984 OPS. The combined numbers for the perceived top two pitchers in the Red Sox' rotation Chris Sale and Price combined to give up 15 runs over 6 1/3 innings.

Price hadn't been with the team over the previous few days due to the birth of his second child.
