Quite simply, David Price doesn't get much better than this.

Since giving up nine runs (seven earned) in 3.2 innings in an 11-5 loss at Texas on May 3 — which dropped him to 2-4 and a 5.11 ERA — Price has been unstoppable.

He threw six, largely harmless innings on Tuesday night against to lead the Red Sox to another blowout victory over the Angels — 9-1 this time, with the offense supplying 14 hits and four home runs.

Since that loss to the Rangers, Price hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his nine starts (7-1).

"He’s David Price," pitching coach Dana LeVangie told after the game. "He is who he wants to be right now, and that’s what we’re happy to see. We’re glad he’s on our team."

Price will make his next start on Sunday night in New York against the first-place Yankees, who won again to stay a half-game up on the Red Sox in the A.L. East.

The question is, will the Sox be happy he's on their team after that one?
