The left-hander was charged with four runs while not receiving a decision as Seattle scored five times in the eighth to stun the Red Sox.

Analysis: Price has been inconsistent over the past six weeks, mixing a handful of strong starts with rocky outings. He followed up eight scoreless innings against Tampa Bay before the All-Star break by allowing eight runs and 22 hits in 11 1/3 innings over his next two starts.
July 18 10:15 AM PT11:15 AM MT12:15 PM CT1:15 PM ET13:15 ET17:15 GMT1:15 10:15 AM MST12:15 PM EST12:45 PM VEN21:15 UAE12:15 PM CT-Prize's puzzling inconsistency continued Sunday, giving up 11 hits and three runs in 5 2/3 innings of a 3-1 loss to the Yankees.
Analysis: Price only struck out one batter Sunday after fanning 10 in each of his previous three starts, including eight scoreless innings against Tampa Bay in his final game before the All-Star break. "I'm definitely not satisfied," said Price, who is on pace to post his worst ERA since his 2009 rookie season. He's next scheduled to face the Twins, against whom he's won five straight starts with an 0.94 ERA.

Analysis: Price struck out 10, allowed four hits, walked one and hit two batters in snapping a personal two-game losing streak. Price didn't give up a hit after the third inning, retiring 17 of the last 19 batters. Coming into the break with a higher than expected ERA, the lefty said he never felt down. ''I was never discouraged,'' he said after lowering his ERA from 4.64 to 4.34. ''I never lost confidence in my abilities and I know my coaching and my teammates didn't either."
