David Price return and Mookie homer not enough for Red Sox on Memorial Day in Chicago

It’s funny. My wife (who is a great wife, my best friend) knows I love Mookie Betts. And she messes up his name and often calls him ‘Melky’. I am sure she’s confusing him with Melky Cabrera. Today was Mookie vs. Melky, and Melky won the battle and the war.

Although Mookie Betts let the fireworks off early with his eighth home run of the season. Damn, he’s a good hitter. Even when he’s not going great he’s still electric.

David Price returned today and got through five innings. He left the game with the opportunity to win it, but a few walks were his undoing.

The Red Sox are going to need Price to return to form to have a shot at what they want to accomplish this season. Dustin Pedroia also left with injury.
