  Price posting remarkable shutout streak through 2 starts with Red Sox The Boston Red Sox are off to a hot start in 2018, and partial credit is due to the 14 shutout innings David Price has thrown across his first two starts. In fact, Price's pair of seven-inning shutout performances puts him in the conversation for one of the best starts a Red Sox pitcher has had to begin a season in recent memory.

The Whitecaps gave up two second-half goals and lost 2-0 loss to LAFC. Not only did the loss snap Vancouver's 11-game Major League Soccer home unbeaten streak , it also was the first time in over a year the Whitecaps lost back-to-back games.

That broke a LAFC scoreless streak of 202 minutes. The Whitecaps ' last home loss was a 2-1 defeat by Portland on July 23. … The last time the Whitecaps lost two games in a row was last March 11 against San Jose and March 18 against Toronto.

VANCOUVER - With star striker Kei Kamara sidelined by an injury, the Vancouver Whitecaps needed someone to step forward Friday night against Los Angeles Football Club.

It didn't happen.

The Whitecaps gave up two second-half goals and lost 2-0 loss to LAFC. Not only did the loss snap Vancouver's 11-game Major League Soccer home unbeaten streak, it also was the first time in over a year the Whitecaps lost back-to-back games.

"It's not one player that you can say didn't step up, it's a team," said veteran midfielder Russell Teibert. "I don't think the whole team played well today.

"When you have a team that doesn't play well you're not going to win games. They scored more goals than us, they had more quality than us, they had more possession than us. They were better than us."

Kamara was one of the Whitecaps biggest off-season acquisitions when he was obtained in a trade from New England. In 12 MLS seasons, he's scored 101 goals, including three this year as a Whitecap.

Without Kamara in the lineup, the Whitecaps had few scoring chances and lacked finish on the ones they managed.

"I could say it (losing Kamara) didn't affect it," said Robinson. "Clearly I would be lying. I think we huffed and puffed up front."

Matthes was undefeated in the 100 and 200 meter backstroke races from 1968-1974, though he lost the world record in races he did not compete in during that span. Between 1949-1964 Miami won 268 of 270 matches). Home Winning Streak — Ohio State University.

LAFC coach Bob Bradley said Vancouver is a different team without Kamara.

"When you play Vancouver, you have to make a special emphasis in terms of set pieces," he said. "When Kamara doesn't play, that brings them down from that end.

"He's a real threat."

With Anthony Blondell still recovering from a concussion, Robinson used Erik Hurtado at striker.

"At times during the season we are going to have to ask players to step up," said Robinson. "Today we did but we were beaten by a better team. We have to accept that."

There were boos from the crowd of 22,120 at BC Place Stadium when the final whistle blew. It was unclear if the fans were frustrated with the Whitecaps' performance or the game's officiating.

The Whitecaps (3-3-1) were beaten 2-1 on the road by Real Salt Lake last Saturday in another game where they couldn't finish.

"It's not ideal but we are going to go through periods this year where you don't create a number of chances," said Robinson. "We've had them in two consecutive games.

Richard Griffin: Blue Jays finding a little pitching will take them a long way

  Richard Griffin: Blue Jays finding a little pitching will take them a long way The Blue Jays, through their first dozen games before Wednesday, were off to their best start since 2009, and their best in any of John Gibbons’ 10 years as manager. And they are backing up what we’ve been saying all along about a starting rotation that is evenly bunched, one through five, with talented arms that can offer up 90 to 110 pitches every time out while keeping the Jays in the game for five to eight innings: Consistency counts for a lot.Following a shaky opener against the Yankees, when Giancarlo Stanton slammed two home runs in his American League debut, the Jays allowed five runs or fewer in the next 11 games.

Vela put LAFC ahead 1-0 in the 59th minute. Left alone in the box, the shifty forward was fed the ball by Urena and launched a rainbow shot that arched into the top right-hand corner of the net. That broke a LAFC scoreless streak of 202 minutes.

Rossi took advantage of some poor Whitecaps clearing attempts to score in the 70th minute. Vela and Rossi have four goals each on the season.

Bradley liked the way his team rebounded from a 5-0 loss to Atlanta last week.

"This is a difficult team to play against. Our competitiveness, our concentration, those things were very good today."

"It took me by surprise," he said. "That meant a lot to me. I'm very grateful to have spent the years here and for the memories that I have."
