Red Sox vs. Angels lineup: David Price makes his second home start of the year

The Red Sox (41-32) look to build upon the good feelings from yesterday’s David Ortiz celebration and 9-4 victory over the Angels (38-39) when they meet the Halos again tonight at Fenway Park (7:15 p.m., FOX). David Price (5.14 ERA) starts for Boston against righty JC Ramirez (4.59 ERA) in only his second appearance at Fenway on the season. His first, against Philly, was one of two quality starts he’s posted in five overall, this season, albeit just barely. He’s really only had one good outing, against Baltimore in his second time out; you could say he’s due, if you believe in that sort of thing.

As for the roster, it’s been a busy 24 hours:

Oy. Lineup-wise, not much changed from yesterday, just a catcher swap. Here’s the full bill of lading:
