Price throws complete game to lead Rays to 3-1 win
LHP David Price wasn't quite as overpowering as in his return from the disabled list last week, but he certainly took care of business Sunday.
Price threw a complete game to lead the Rays to a 3-1 win and a sweep of the sagging White Sox.
Price threw 98 pitches allowing eight hits but only the one run, striking out five.
The Rays, now a season-high nine games over .500 at 49-40, scored their runs the old-fashioned way, by working for them.
In the first inning, Desmond Jennings led off with a double, moved to third on Sean Rodriguez's bunt and scored on All-Star Ben Zobrist's sac fly.
In the fifth, Yunel Escobar singled with two outs, went to second on a walk and scored on a broken-bat single by Rodriguez.
In the seventh, Luke Scott led off with a triple and scored on Jose Molina's sac fly.
Molina had a good game behind the plate, too, throwing out two runners trying to steal.
1B James Loney was 0-for-3, snapping his career-best 16-game hitting streak.
The Rays open a four-game series with the Twins on Monday night at the Trop, with Roberto Hernandez facing Samuel Deduno.
