Price: 'Home run' marred shutout start

David Price may have thrown seven shutout innings today in a minor-league game against the Red Sox, but he's counting a home run among them.

A second-inning flyball by Aaron Bates went as an error on the field -- but it's a homer in Price's mind. Why?

"That was 15 rows deep if there was no wind," said Price, who allowed one hit, walked one and struck out eight. His last inning came to an end after two outs with him at 106 pitches.

"I counted that as a home run," Price said. "I went 6 2/3 (innings) with one (run). That's my opinion."
