Tonight's lineups: Red Sox vs. Athletics

BOSTON -- With a left-hander (Sean Manaea) on the mound for Oakland, the Red Sox lineup -- which produced 14 runs on Monday -- will have a vastly different look tonight.

Coco Crisp DH
Billy Burns CF
Josh Reddick RF
Khris Davis LF
Stephen Vogt C
Billy Butler 1B
Yonder Alonso 3B
Marcus Semien SS
Chris Coghlan 2B
Sean Manaea P

Strong Grapefruit League debut for Price

Strong Grapefruit League debut for Price

David Price's Grapefruit League debut was nearly perfect.

The Red Sox left-hander pitched four scoreless innings, allowing a hit and a walk and striking out five in a 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in Fort Myers, Fla.

Price threw 55 pitches, 34 for strikes. He cruised through the first on nine pitches. He allowed the single and walk in the second.  

"It feels good. This is March 15 and I've never been able to have a four-pitch mix on March 15," Price told reporters after his start. "I've never been this far along in spring training even though I've only thrown in one game. I'm excited about that."

The Red Sox open March 29 at Tampa Bay, with Chris Sale likely to start. Price will likely pitch the second game of the season, March 30 at Tropicana Field.
