Price Is Right Again; Rays Win

Robbie Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, FLA) -- David Price is either healthy or good at faking it.

For his second straight start since coming of the disabled list, Price was stellar, this time pitching a complete game and leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

Price allowed eight hits, walking none and striking out five in the win.

Price had been on the DL since May 16 with a strained left tricep. Before being placed on the DL, Price, who won the AL Cy Young Award last season, had struggled to a 1-4 record with a 5.24 ERA. In his last two games, Price has 15 strikeouts and allowed only one run.

"That injury was kind of a blessing in disguise, just letting me kind of regroup, hit the reset button on my mindset and everything," Price said. "I'm right where I need to be right now, and we still have a lot of baseball left."                                                                                                                                                 
The Rays (49-40) have now won eight of nine and are tied with Baltimore for the second Wild Card spot in the AL.

Meanwhile, the White Sox (34-51) are moving in the opposite direction. They have lost nine of 11.
