BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Through two starts against his former Rays, Red Sox ace David Price has pitched 14 scoreless innings while allowing just 10 base-runners to offset 10 strikeouts.

In fact, dating back to five relief appearances last September and two more in the playoffs, the lefty hasn't allowed a run in his last 29 1/3 innings.

His manager Alex Cora said he's back to being his old self.

"I feel he's in a good place from the get-go," Cora said. "In Ft. Myers, in Tampa when he pitched, and here today, I don't think he needs to prove people wrong. When he's healthy, he's one of the best pitchers in the big leagues, and he's healthy right now."

Sox lead the East at 6-and-1 with four one-run wins.

What does Price make of his club's hot start?

"It's been good," he said. "We've played a lot of close games. Our ability to win a one-run game has been very good right now. We're 2-0 in extra inning games, kind of continue that trend from last year. If you can win one-run games, and if you ever go to extras have the ability to win those as well, that's big."

Sox starters have a 0.83 ERA.

Boston and Tampa again tomorrow, with Rick Porcello set to oppose Jake Faria.
