Keys to the Game:
  1. Swing Early: Opposing hitters are hitting .444 on the first pitch from Price.
  2. Get ’em Early: 71% of the HR’s Price has given up this season have been in innings 1-3.
  3. Knock out Price: The Rays bullpen has a 7.71 ERA so far in September. That’s a lot worse than Prices 4.75 ERA.
