For all of the complaints about his record in the postseason, David Price is perhaps the biggest reason the Red Sox season still has some life.

Price (pictured) threw four shutout innings of relief as Boston came from behind to beat the Astros 10-3 in Game 3 of their American League Division Series Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park.

Houston took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning off Boston starter Doug Fister, two of them on a Carlos Correa home run to straightaway center.

Fister lasted just 1.1 innings before giving way to Joe Kelly in the second.

The Red Sox cut into the lead in the bottom of the second inning on an RBI single by Sandy Leon and then took the lead in a three-run third inning.

Hanley Ramirez - with a huge four-hit day - doubled in a run and Rafael Devers crushed a two-run homer beyond the Red Sox bullpen in right center.

Boston broke the game open with a six-run seventh. Ramirez made it 6-3 with a bases-loaded double that drove in a pair. Devers blooped a single to left to make it 7-3, and Jackie Bradley Jr. finished the scoring with a three-run homer that bounced out of the glove of right fielder Josh Reddick.

The Astros still lead the series two games to one with Game 4 scheduled for Monday afternoon at 1 PM.
