CLEVELAND -- David Price finally walked off the mound to a standing ovation in October.This wasnt the one he craved, though.Clevelands fans derisively cheered Prices exit in the fourth inning as the Indians roughed up the left-hander and beat the Boston Red Sox 6-0 on Friday to take a 2-0 AL Division Series lead.Price was convinced this time would be different than with Tampa Bay, Detroit or Toronto, the three teams he pitched for in the playoffs over the past three seasons. But nothing has changed and now he must face the wrath of Red Sox Nation, which will undoubtedly remind him Boston isnt paying him $217 million over seven seasons to crumble when the stage grows.Lonnie Chisenhall connected for a three-run homer in the second inning off Price, who lasted just 3 1/3 innings and looked at the grass as he walked to the dugout as Indians roared.Afterward, Price said hes counting on another chance.I know my number is going to be called again to pitch another game in 2016, he said. I want it. Ill be ready. If they need me, Ill be ready for Game 4 because I didnt throw a lot of pitches today. I take a tremendous amount of pride in what I do and want to establish myself in the postseason. Ive got two wins in the playoffs. I just havent got one as a starter.Showing no signs of a late-season leg injury, Corey Kluber limited the AL East champions to three hits over seven innings as the Indians moved within one win of returning to the AL Championship Series for the first time since 2007.David Ortiz and the Red Sox hope they can start to turn around the series on Sunday when Clay Buchholz starts Game 3 at Fenway Park or their season will be over and Big Papis career will be done.Ortiz went 0 for 4. He and Dustin Pedroia -- Bostons two biggest stars -- are both 1 for 8 in the series.Weve kind of lost who we are, said Pedroia, who let an easy double-play grounder slip through his legs. Were the Boston Red Sox. We should dictate the tempo of the game and dictate how things play out. Obviously, our backs are against the wall and we have zero room for error. But I dont think any of us are ready to go home for the year.Price came in 10-2 in his career against the Indians, including a 5-0 mark at Progressive Field.But that didnt mean anything to these Indians, who strung together four straight hits -- three of them soft singles -- to put him in a 4-0 hole after just two innings.Thats all Kluber needed. Making his first postseason start, the Cy Young Award candidate had little trouble with the Red Sox, who missed a chance to do some damage against him in the fourth.Kluber created the jam with two walks before getting Ortiz to swing at the first pitch on pop out to short. Ortiz slammed his bat to the ground in frustration and Bostons anxiety grew when Kluber struck out Hanley Ramirez looking for the final out.The Red Sox only got one runner to third andBIG POP UPOrtiz did was not available to the media following the game. His locker was already empty when the clubhouse opened.This is his final playoffs as the 40-year-old will retire despite having an MVP-caliber season. This hasnt been a typical October for him so far, but its not for any lack of effort.David is going to give you what he has, and sometimes that hasnt been 100 percent in terms of health, manager John Farrell said. But you know what, our mentality is theres no tomorrow, and I think hes showed that.CRYSTAL BALLBuchholz bounced in and out of the rotation during the regular season, but will start with the season on the line -- as Pedroia predicted.Ive been telling `Buck all along that hell be on the mound for our biggest start of the year, Pedroia said, cracking a smile. He would always say, `I know.LOOSE SOXBoston has been in this spot before. The Red Sox lost the first two games of the 1999 ALDS in Cleveland, but won the next three. . Price has allowed at least two earned runs in 10 straight playoff games, matching Andy Benes record. ... RF Mookie Betts went 0 for 2 and was hit by a pitch on his 24th birthday. . Boston and Cleveland are battling in the ALDS for a record-tying fourth time. ... Boston has been shut out seven times in the playoffs, twice by Cleveland. . RHP Joe Kelly has struck out a batter in eight consecutive postseason outings, dating to the 2012 NLCS with St. Louis. . Boston does not have an extra-base hit and is batting .200 with four walks in the series.UP NEXTRed Sox: Buchholz had a 6.35 ERA in his first 10 starts and was demoted to the bullpen. He has tweaked his mechanics and strengthened Farrells trust by pitching six innings of one-hit ball in his last regular-season start.Indians: Josh Tomlin lost to the Red Sox on Aug. 15, allowing three runs in 7 2/3 innings.

The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Cheap Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland, a driving force behind the NHL adopting its wildly popular 3-on-3 overtime, wondered recently how exciting it would be for the league to adopt a wild-card play-in game similar to what is used by Major League Baseball.The proposal would add a third wild-card playoff team to each conference, with the bottom two wild-card teams facing each other in a one-game playoff to determine which team advances to a first-round playoff series. The idea was discussed at last weeks board of governors meetings in Florida.Personally, Im not in favor of it, Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said. I think we demand a lot of our players and playing more games, I dont think, is a solution.Hextall said that considering the teams play a preseason with a minimum of seven games, 82 games in the regular season and up to two months in the playoffs, plus the potential of the Olympics and World Cup every other season, weve got to be really careful of putting our players through more than we already do.Under Hollands plan, if the current season ended Sunday, the ninth-seeded New Jersey Devils (30 points) would face the second wild-card team in the East, the Washington Capitals (37 points), in the Eastern Conference play-in game. The ninth-seeded Winnipeg Jets (29 points) would face off against the second wild-card Los Angeles Kings (30 points) in the West.It is something weve discussed and it has gained some traction, Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill said. But what if the second wild-card team has a six-point lead on the ninth-place team? Should they be knocked out of the playoffs becausse they lose one game?In the three seasons since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, when the Columbus Blue Jackets missed the playoffs despite being tied in points with the Minnesota Wild, at least two points have separated the second wild-card team from the ninth-seeded non-playoff team in each conference.ddddddddddddThat alone, Florida Panthers executive chairman Peter Luukko said, should be reason enough to keep the current playoff format unchanged.I think its fine the way it is, Luukko said. I mean, were playing 82 games. I think its fair and I think its really working. Its coming down to the end of the season anyway right now. It couldnt be more exciting. I just think that kind of cheapens it.Nill said there have been discussions among general managers about giving the No. 1 playoff seed more of a reward for finishing with the best record in each conference, perhaps by increasing their number of first-round home games from four to five.That idea might be more palatable to the players than adding an extra game to their schedules.I think its stupid, Flyers forward Jakub Voracek said. A one-game playoff? I dont think this is baseball. You have 82 games to get in the playoffs. If youre not in, youre out.Teammate Wayne Simmonds agreed.You get in, you get in, he said. There should be no play-in game. You finish one through eight, youre in the playoffs. You finish ninth and you lose a tiebreaker by goal differential or something else, its too bad. The tiebreakers are fine, why change it now? Wholesale NFL Hoodies Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Black Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap NFL T-shirts Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
