Rays pitcher David Price left today’s 8-5 win against the Red Sox after pitching four innings for precautionary reasons with a bruise on his upper right chest.

Price was struck there by a line drive from Mike Aviles in the third inning.

Price, who was immediately attended to by head athletics trainer Ron Porterfield, threw four warm-up pitches and remained in the game.

He allowed two runs in the fourth inning and did not come out for the fifth.

Price was taken to Mass General Hospital, where tests were negative. He rejoined the team for their train ride to New York City.

Manager Joe Maddon said Price will be sore but he expects him to make his next start.
