RAYS WIN! David Price pitched a complete game gem (on 117 pitches, 77strikes, 68% K/BB), tossing 12 strikeouts in the Rays 7-3 win against the Twins. Tampa Bay improves to 10-10 on the year. Jake Odorizzi will take on Mike Pelfrey Wednesday at the Trop.
We’ll put together a recap shortly. Go Rays!
Correction: 12 strikeouts. Price locked Kubel up on a fastball up.
Make that 11 strikeouts. That was a filthy cutter to Corobello.
A swinging strikeout on a fastball, up in the zone, ends the eighth for Price. Price has wrung up 10 Twins. With the exception of that four run inning, Price has been great.
Matt Joyce came up big, crushing a two-RBI double to center.
Nice! DesJen follows with his second base hit of the night. Gardy has seen enough, pulling Gibson after three plus innings. The next pitcher inherits two on with no outs.
BenZo led off the fourth with a base hit, for the third time in four innings. Tampa Bay needs to tack a couple more on this inning.
Price finally gets out of the four hit, three run, 21 pitch inning with a Kurt Suzuki swinging strikeout.
Chris Colobello absolutely crushed a two-run homer to left, cutting the Rays lead to two runs.
