BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox manager Alex Cora is sticking with David Price [url=http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-bryan-shaw-jersey]http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-bryan-shaw-jersey[/url] , saying Wednesday the left-hander will start Game 2 of the AL Championship Series against Houston despite an unprecedented history of playoff struggles.Speaking on MLB Network radio a day after the Red Sox eliminated the Yankees from the AL Division Series, Cora said he plans to use Chris Sale in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series that begins at Fenway Park on Saturday night. The first-year manager said Price, the loser in the Red Sox only defeat in the ALDS, is still in line to start Game 2.“We trust him,” Cora said last week after Price allowed three runs and got just five outs in a 6-2 loss in Game 2. “He bounced back before. We’ll talk to him and make a few adjustments and we’ll go from there.”Nathan Eovaldi and 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello are expected to start Games 3 and 4, after picking up wins in the same roles against the Yankees. The current Red Sox staff entered the series with a 0-19 postseason record as starters, and now everyone but Price has picked up a win. Price has won two games in relief.In all [url=http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-tyler-anderson-jersey]Tyler Anderson Jersey[/url] , Price is 0-9 as a starter in the postseason and his team has lost all 10 of his career playoff starts, the longest such skid in postseason history. The latest was a five-out cameo in Game 2 against the Yankees in which he gave up homers to Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez.But Cora expressed confidence in Price afterward, claiming that Astros ace Justin Verlander and Red Sox Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez also struggled in the playoffs early in their careers. He also noted that Price pitched well out of the bullpen last year, making two appearances with 6 2/3 innings of scoreless relief against Houston.Verlander had a 5.57 ERA through his first eight playoff starts, but he won three of them; Martinez struggled in the 2003 and early in the 2004 postseason but had already posted a win in his playoff debut in 1998 and threw 18 shutout innings over three appearances in 1999.Price said after his start he will pitch in any role that helps the team.“I just want to win. That’s it,” Price said after his ALDS start. “My main goal is to win in the playoffs, to win a World Series. … And whatever I need to do to help us do that [url=http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-antonio-senzatela-jersey]http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-antonio-senzatela-jersey[/url] , I’m fine with. But I know I’m more than capable of winning games as a starter in October. That’s what I look forward to doing.” CLEVELAND (AP) — Andrew Miller’s start-and-stop season has been disrupted again.The Cleveland Indians placed the invaluable reliever on the 10-day disabled list with shoulder soreness, an injury the AL Central leaders hope gets better in time for the postseason.Manager Terry Francona said Miller complained about his shoulder Tuesday and, after consulting with the team’s medical staff, received a cortisone injection.“It was the right thing to do for him,” Francona said. “We’ve talked about it before, even when it’s maybe not convenient you need to do the right thing. Andrew is going to pitch for a long time and he’s carried such a big load for us that we need to look out for him a little bit, too.”Francona said Miller be completely shut down while the shot takes affect and there’s no timetable on when the 32-year-old will pitch again.“We’re just going to go off of Andrew [url=http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chris-rusin-jersey]Chris Rusin Jersey[/url] ,” Francona said Wednesday before the Indians hosted the Minnesota Twins. “We’re going to do what’s right by him. We’ll update you as we go. We just don’t know what that is.”This is Miller’s third trip to the DL this season. He was previously sidelined with a hamstring issue and then inflammation in his right knee. It’s just been that kind of year for the two-time All-Star.“Sometimes things happen so you just do the best you can,” Francona said. “He’s not going to quit and we’re not going to quit either.”One of baseball’s best relievers when healthy, Miller is 2-3 with a 3.38 ERA in just 27 games this season. He made 57 appearances in 2017, his first full season with the Indians, who acquired him in a trade with the New York Yankees in July 2016.Francona rode Miller hard in the ’16 postseason, when he dominated hitters while helping Cleveland get to the World Series for the first time since 1997. Miller went 2-0 with a 1.40 ERA and struck out 30 in 19 1-3 innings.Miller is only under contract through this season, and to protect themselves against his injuries and the future [url=http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-wade-davis-jersey]http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-wade-davis-jersey[/url] , the Indians acquired closer Brad Hand and right-hander Adam Cimber before the trade deadline.To take Miller’s roster spot, the Indians recalled Tyler Olson from Triple-A Columbus. The lefty was up twice previously this season with Cleveland, posting a 1-1 record with a 6.75 ERA in 32 outings.
