Or maybe David Price simply isn't up to the task of pitching against the Yankees.

It was an absolutely gutless performance.

New York slammed five home runs off Price in just 3.1 innings as the Red Sox fell 11-1 Sunday night in the Bronx.

Price was beyond bad. The only good news was that he didn't walk anyone. He actually threw 51 of his 71 pitches for strikes. It's one thing to pitch to contact.

It's another to throw batting practice to a team like the Yankees that has home run power up and down the lineup.

It's not that the Red Sox lost. Poop happens. This wasn't the first blowout loss of the season...and it won't be the last.

But the Yankee bat boy could have hit Price last night.

Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino was masterful, throwing 6.2 shutout innings. He allowed just two hits and struck out six in cruising to his 13th win of the year.

The lone Boston run came in the top of the ninth on a run-scoring fielder's choice by Rafael Devers.
