The Tampa Bay Rays begin interleague play Friday night when they open a three-game series against the Reds at the Great American Ball Park. This means that the pitchers will get a chance to bat. David Price is excited about the opportunity.
“I’m looking more forward to pitching, but I’m definitely excited to hit,” said LHP David Price, tonight’s starter. “I’m excited to, but I think I know the reality of it. (Reds RHP Johnny) Cueto’s extremely tough. Cueto’s really good. I just want to have good at-bats. My goal is to get four at-bats. That either means our hitters are raking and we’re scoring a whole bunch of runs or I’m pitching deep into the game. So that’s the goal for me, to get four ABs.”
