White Sox 5, Red Sox 4: David Price's debut went about as well as the Red Sox could have hoped. If only reliever Matt Barnes had held a lead for him. Price dealt with control issues but gave up little more than a three-run homer to Melky Cabrera in an 88-pitch, five-inning performance. But the White Sox scored twice against Barnes in the seventh inning to win the opener of the three-game series.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Making his season debut, David Price has thrown 2 shutout innings against the White Sox. If he comes back healthy, he can greatly help a Red Sox rotation that has had issues filling the spot behind Chris Sale, Rick Porcello, Eduardo Rodriguez and Drew Pomeranz this season. Boston starting pitchers other than those 4 have a 7.71 ERA this season, and the team is 3-7 in those starts.

David Price is off the DL (left elbow strain) for his 2017 debut on Monday. His first season with the Red Sox didn't go well by his standards.

From MLB's Eddie Grant in 1918 to the NFL's Pat Tillman in 2004, athletes from the major pro leagues were among those who died in overseas wars. Grant, a former infielder for Harvard and the Indians, Phillies, Reds and Giants died in France in World War I. Tillman, a star on defense for Arizona State and the Cardinals, enlisted after 9/11 and was killed in Afghanistan. On Memorial Day and always we remember with appreciation all who sacrificed for our safety and freedom.
