Sale struggles, but Marrero hits 2 HRs to lift Red Sox

Price uneven in season debut, White Sox get past Red Sox 5-4

In the bottom of the eighth inning against the Red Sox Tuesday night, Cabrera came up against reliever Blaine Boyer looking for his third hit of the game.

The White Sox will also have a pitcher starting on the mound for the first time this season, left-hander David Holmberg.

Upon returning to Chicago to face the White Sox for the first time in a Red Sox uniform, Boston left-hander Chris Sale put up his worst game of the year.

CHICAGO (AP) - David Price felt healthy and strong. The team announced Pedroia's injury as a left wrist sprain, but an MRI exam could show more.

Marrero said he had about 120 texts waiting for him, more than he had when he was drafted by the Red Sox as their top pick in 2012.

Sale (6-2), who spent his first seven seasons with the White Sox, allowed six runs on 10 hits in five innings - his shortest and shakiest outing this season.

Pedroia bounced to first in the first inning and Jose Abreu slid into the bag for the out.

"It's hard to say right now, and I think until we get the information, we'll know more then", Farrell said.

"I'm playing against my friends", he added. The White Sox won three of four weekend games against the Detroit Tigers. Mike Pelfrey will start game three and is 2-4 with a 4.41 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season.

Boston almost tied the game in the 8th, but a drive by Mitch Moreland hooked foul in right field.

Quintana, though, couldn't capitalize on the rare run support, giving up two homers to No. 9 hitter Deven Marrero and one to Mookie Betts before the third inning was complete, getting KO'd on Marrero's three-run shot in the third. But the 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor had some nice moments as well, allowing just two hits and striking out four while throwing 88 pitches, 58 for strikes.

"It's definitely a step in the right direction", said Price, in the second season of a $217 million, seven-year contact.

"I don't think it has to do with any sort of trade rumors, " Hahn said. Quintana is coming off his worst outing of the year, allowing 8 runs in 4.1 innings at Arizona. "There was a lot of moving parts over on that side".

Adrian Gonzalez's sacrifice fly and Utley's RBI double started the Dodgers' comeback in the third.

If Quintana wins the matchup against Sale in dominant fashion, it may give him the confidence needed to break out of the rut he has been stuck in. That streak came to an end in an 13-7 victory over the White Sox that saw Marrero blast a pair of home runs and drive in five runs to buoy starter Chris Sale, who struggled mightily his return to Chicago. They pried away the Red Sox's No. 1 prospect (infielder Yoan Moncada) and top pitching hopeful (right-hander Michael Kopech) among a package of four minor leaguers. Quintana will oppose his former teammate on Tuesday night.

"This game tonight delivered the unexpected", Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Quintana's ERA has creeped up over his last three starts from 3.92 to 4.82 to 5.60. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Sale has joined Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling and Roger Clemens as the only pitchers to rack up at least 100 strikeouts in their first 10 starts of a season. Price, the 2012 American League Cy Young victor, allowed nine runs (six earned) and 12 hits, struck out eight and walked two in 5 2/3 innings in two rehab starts for Triple-A Pawtucket.
