Rays happy to get away from Fenway

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — To this day, opposing pitchers, especially young ones, are still intimidated by Fenway Park. Matt Moore and David Price will claim until they are blue in the face that’s not the case, after both were shellacked in the first two games of the American League Division Series at Fenway. Both have had success there.

In the old days, the Yankees would avoid using Hall of Famer Whitey Ford (6.16 ERA) at Fenway because he was a lefthander and lefties never had fared well with the Green Monster looming, especially against righthanded hitters.
