Alex Cora: ‘No frustration' after walk-off loss to Diamondbacks


The Red Sox went to 2-8 on the season following their walk-off loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday night, but manager Alex Cora is staying calm.

Following the 5-4 defeat, which made it three straight series losses for Boston to start the season, Cora said he isn't frustrated with the way things are going for his ballclub.

"There's no frustration, man," Cora told reporters. "We just keep grinding. We show up tomorrow. Hopefully we have a happy flight, go home. See the family on Monday. Hang out with your kids and all that. Kind of put everything into perspective and move forward.”

Saturday's starting pitcher David Price, on the other hand, admitted he and the rest of the team felt a level of frustration.

“It’s frustrating," Price said. "Everybody in here is frustrated. We’ve been through a lot together, this group of guys over the last two and three years. So we’ll be OK. I think everybody in here understands that. We’ve just gotta take it one game at a time like we did last year."

The Red Sox will finish off their 11-game road trip in Arizona on Sunday, enjoy the day off on Monday, then head back to Fenway Park for the ring ceremony and home opener on Tuesday. Price was asked what kind of reception he expects the team to get from the fans (who undoubtedly are frustrated) when they return to Boston.

“Cheers, I hope,” Price said. “I don’t think anybody’s ever gotten their World Series rings and gotten booed. I think we’ll get cheered.”
