Short rest. Low expectations given his history. A fan base expecting the worst.

David Price happily flipped the script on all of it Thursday night, pitching the Red Sox to a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros and a trip to the World Series where they will face either the Dodgers or Brewers.
Price was masterful, tossing six shutout innings while his Houston counterpart Justin Verlander was tossing home run balls. Price scattered three hits and didn't walk a batter while striking out nine to pick up his first career postseason win as a starter.
J.D. Martinez put Boston up 1-0 in the top of the third inning with a solo home run. Rafael Devers made it 4-0 with a three-run shot in the sixth.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
