Red Sox activate LHP David Price from disabled list

And there it was, in bright lights, for all to see.

For the Red Sox, trailing by three runs entering the ninth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays, it meant possibly having their lead in the American League East cut to two measly games with 15 to play.

The Rays will turn Friday to Matt Andriese (5-3, 4.46 ERA).

"In the end, we won". "What we do to combat catchers having to go out all the time". "Comeback win was huge".

"We had some opportunities ... early in the game that cost us some chances to score some runs", Melvin said. "Hopefully we can carry this momentum into tomorrow".

The Boston Red Sox will try to inch closer to an American League East title when they send 2016 AL Cy Young victor Rick Porcello to the mound on Saturday in the middle of a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Just last week they went 19 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park.

The A's, losing for the second time in their last eight games, had two runners caught on the bases and also had an error.

On Friday night, Boston opened the series with a marathon 13-6 victory in 15 innings.

Price threw a simulated game on Wednesday and said "I don't know what else I have to do". "We've become accustomed to it". Manager John Farrell said Thursday he looked good in two simulated games. "There's a relaxed attitude and energy in the dugout, knowing that someone's going to step up big. there's something to be said for the confidence that comes from that".

Even by Red Sox standards, this comeback was impressive.

It wasn't all bad for the veteran second baseman.

Ryon Healy hit his 25th home run of the season, but after taking a one-run lead into the bottom of the fifth inning, the wheels came off and the Red Sox scored one in the fifth, two in the sixth and three in the seventh inning.

He gave up a run on five hits in six innings, leaving a 1-1 game before doubles by Dustin Pedroia, Andrew Benintendi and Mitch Moreland brought home two runs and made Pomeranz a victor in the bottom of the inning.

Boston is 3-12 in Porcello's last 15 division starts and 6-3 in their last 9 games overall while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 road games.

The Red Sox's run has also coincided with the healthy return of Dustin Pedroia, who is 9-for-13 in the last four games, returning to a reliable role in the lineup after missing 30 games due to left knee inflammation.
