David Price responds to David Ortiz: “This is not a war.”

86 Comments

Red Sox DH David Ortiz made some regrettable comments directed at Rays pitcher David Price following Friday’s game. Drama from last week’s series in Florida — in which the Red Sox did not appreciate Yunel Escobar stealing third base with a five-run lead in the eighth inning — continued, as Price hit two Boston batters and four in Red Sox uniforms were ejected.

Ortiz told the media that Price was acting “like a little girl” and a “little [expletive]”. He added, “It’s a war. It’s on.”

Price had a chance to respond on Saturday evening prior to the start of the second game of the series in Boston between the two clubs. Via Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports:

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
