TORONTO -- David Price takes the mound against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday coming off a three-inning start against the Boston Red Sox.

Price allowed four hits, three walks and three runs and needed 83 pitches against the Red Sox on Friday. His stuff is fine, he said, but he needs to throw strikes.

"I've just got to throw strikes," Price said on Tuesday before the opener of a three-game series against the Blue Jays. "I feel, honestly, my stuff right now is better than it has ever been in my life.

"My fastball velocity, changeup, my curveball -- everything feels good. I've got to get it together."

Price won his first start of the season against the New York Yankees on April 7, when he allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings before taking the loss against the Red Sox.

"[The Red Sox] have a very good approach," Price said. "They have one of the better approaches you're going to see all year. They have a very good game plan going into a game."

But he isn't dwelling on that outing.

"I'm over it," Price said. "I didn't let it get to me that day. I've got 31 more starts this year."

The last time Price pitched in Toronto was Aug. 28, when he picked up the win by striking out 14 over seven innings. In 12 career starts against Toronto, he is 9-2 with a 2.06 ERA.
