Xander Bogaerts hadn't had a hit through the first three games of the American League Division Series.
Price entered the game after another former Tiger, Doug Fister, struggled in his first start of the postseason. Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts made a home-run saving catch at the wall; Astros right fielder Josh Reddick knocked a ball over the tricky curving wall near the foul pole, giving Jackie Bradley Jr. a three-run home run. Red Sox bench coach Gary DiSarcina took the reins in Farrell's absence.
It was the first postseason win for Boston since the 2013 World Series Game 6, after previous year being swept by Cleveland.
