BUFFALO — Red Sox starter David Price needs a little more time.

Price struggled in his first game action of the season, lasting just two innings in a rehab start for Triple A Pawtucket in their game Friday night against the Buffalo Bisons.

Price, who has been on the disabled list all season with left elbow soreness, was shut down on Feb. 28 after experiencing discomfort during spring training.

Price was slated to throw 85-90 pitches. He threw 41 of his 65 pitches for strikes. The lefthander gave up three runs on five hits and one walk.

Price was immediately tested when Bisons’ leadoff hitter Jake Elmore worked a 15-pitch at-bat before hitting a double in the first inning.

Elmore stroked a bases-loaded, two-run single in the second to put Buffalo up, 3-0.

Raffy Lopez led off the second with a solo home run over the 371 foot wall in left-center.

Three of Price’s four strikeouts came in the first, but he seemed to labor in the second inning.

It was difficult to get a true read on Price’s velocity because of technical difficulties with the radar gun at Coca-Cola Field.

The PawSox were trailing, 3-0, when Price exited the game.
