BOSTON -- Quick notes from the Red Sox' 7-4 victory over the Rays in Game 2 of the ALDS, courtesy of the Red Sox' P.R. department . . . 

-- The only time the Red Sox have ever lost a postseason series after going up 2-0 -- which they've done eight times -- was the 1986 World Series against the Mets.

-- The Sox' three double plays was their most in a postseason game since Game 4 of the 1918 World Series.

-- David Price is the first pitcher to allow at least seven runs in at least seven innings in a postseason game since Randy Johnson in 1999.

-- Prior to tonight, Price had never allowed more than four runs in a regular-season or postseason game against Boston (20 total games).

-- The Sox have been successful in 42 consecutive stolen-base attempts, dating back to Aug. 9.

-- John Lackey has allowed no more than 4 runs in 12 of his 13 career postseason starts. Among American Leaguers since 2002, only Andy Pettitte (16 starts) and CC Sabathia (13) have more such starts.

-- David Ortiz now has 14 postseason home runs, extending his Red Sox club record.

-- The save was Koji Uehara's first career postseasons save.
