BOSTON — Having survived a complete meltdown by their bullpen to escape with a victory Tuesday night , the Boston Red Sox send a red-hot David Price to the mound in an effort to sweep the two-game interleague series with the Miami Marlins at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.The first-place Red Sox, who maintained their 6 1/2-game lead over the winning New York Yankees atop the American League East, blew a 4-1 lead as the bullpen surrendered five runs in the top of the eighth. Boston rallied for three in the bottom half — the go-ahead run scored on a wild pitch — and saw Craig Kimbrel blow the save in the ninth before the walk-off win came on a throwing error.“A win is a win, no matter how we win,” Eduardo Nunez told the NESN television audience after his double play grounder turned into the error that produced the winning run and an 8-7 victory.Article continues below ...Craig Kimbrel continued his tough August (two homers, nine walks, 5.56 ERA in 11 1/3 innings over his last 11 outings) by coughing up the lead in the ninth but then got the win on JT Riddle’s throwing error.Asked if the bullpen has been spotty lately, Kimbrel said: “It has been. There’s no denying that. We can all see it but our team’s been able to step up and keep winning through it. Going forward there’s a lot of games left and if we’re going to be a successful team we’re going to have to turn it around.“We don’t want to come out here and give up runs like we did tonight. All we can do is learn from it, take it and go forward from there because this is the team that we have and this is the team that we’re going to make a run with, so we gotta figure it out or we’re not going to win. I’ve got a pretty good feeling we’re going to figure it out.”The dramatic ending marked the second time in recent weeks the Red Sox avoided what would have been their first four-game losing streak of the season. They are the only team in baseball without a losing streak of at least four games.Now they send Price, who is pitching like a $31 million-a-year pitcher, out to face rookie Trevor Richards in the finale of the brief set.Price hasn’t loss since July 1. Since the All-Star break, he is 5-0 and has allowed five earned runs in 41 1/3 innings over six games.He makes around $1 million every time he takes the mound and he’s truly been earning it Patrick Roy Jersey , raising his record to 14-6 and lowering his ERA to 3.50.Price is 15-12 all-time in interleague play but 1-3 with a 3.42 ERA in four starts against the Marlins. Miami’s Starlin Castro is 8-for-20 against Price.Richards is 3-7 with a 4.23 ERA on the year but is 0-2 in his last six starts. But he allowed only two runs over the first three of those starts and has struck out 40 in 33 innings over the six-game span.In his last start, against the Yankees in the Bronx, Richards pitched 5 1/3 effective innings in a no-decision that ended in a Marlins win. He allowed two runs on three hits and struck out nine on the big stage.“It’s always fun to throw against the Yankees and in front of a crowd,” Richards said after that start. “Once the game started, it’s another team. Just focus on the hitters and execute pitches.”As his bullpen melted down in the eighth and ninth innings, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after the game that reliever Ryan Brasier was not available because of a sore left foot.Before the game, Cora announced Eduardo Rodriguez (ankle sprain) will come off the disabled list to start one of the four games in Chicago this weekend.The Marlins announced Garrett Cooper, who hasn’t played since July 20 because a sprained right wrist, will have season-ending surgery Friday. He appeared in only 14 major league games this season. CALGARY, Alberta (AP) The Calgary Flames have hired Bill Peters as the team’s head coach.The Flames introduced Peters at a news conference on Monday at Scotiabank Saddledome. The 53-year-old from Three Hills, Alberta, resigned as head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday after four seasons and a year remaining on his contract.The Flames fired Glen Gulutzan and assistants Dave Cameron and Paul Gerrard last week after missing the playoffs with a 37-35-10 record.In his NHL head coaching debut, Peters went 137-138-53 with the Hurricanes but wasn’t able to get the team into the playoffs.Carolina was looking for a new general manager as Ron Francis was reassigned within the organization Womens Samuel Girard Jersey , so Peters’ tenure there would have eventually been subject to the new GM’s approval.Peters is Calgary general manager Brad Treliving’s second head coaching hire after Gulutzan, and the fourth coach of the Flames in nine years after Gulutzan (2016-17) Bob Hartley (2012-16) and Brent Sutter (2009-12).”I think it’s a very good team and I think it’s a team that’s set up to win and play the modern game,” Peters said.”What I talk about the modern game, when you watch the playoffs, you need defense up in the rush, you need offense from your defense. We’re going to be able to do that with what we have.”The majority of the core is still in their prime and still has room to grow and a higher ceiling to be reached. There’s lots to work with and that’s exciting.”Calgary has finished outside the playoffs seven of the past nine years.Peters was the head coach and Treliving one of the general managers of the Canadian team that won gold at the 2016 men’s world hockey championship in Russia.Treliving had asked the Hurricanes for permission to speak to Peters last week about coming to Calgary. The GM said he didn’t talk to any other candidates.”This is an individual I’m familiar with,” Treliving said. ”I was focused on Bill. It’s based upon seeing and living it live with him over albeit a short period of time.”He’s prepared. I think he’s a student of the modern game. I think he’s relationship driven with players. He’s honest and direct.”Peters is coaching Canada again at the world championship May 4-20 in Copenhagen, Denmark.After leading the Spokane Chiefs to Western Hockey League and Memorial Cup championships in 2008, Peters spent three seasons coaching the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs and then joined the Detroit Red Wings coaching staff.He was an assistant for Mike Babcock in Detroit for three seasons before heading to Raleigh, N.C.—
