Price could join rare company at Fenway Park

NEW YORK -- David Price's scheduled start in Monday's makeup game against the Red Sox at Fenway will afford the Rays' left-hander a rare opportunity.

After beating the Red Sox on Wednesday night in Boston, Price could become the first starting pitcher in more than 70 years to beat the Red Sox at Fenway Park twice within a span of five days.

The last two pitchers to turn the trick were Rip Collins for the St. Louis Browns in 1931 and Lefty Grove with the Philadelphia Athletics in '29.

Collins started the first and fifth games of a five-game series and won, 5-3, on May 14 and 6-2 on May 17.

Grove threw five innings on May 1 and exited with a 19-2 lead. The next day he threw a complete game in a 5-1 win.
