Although David Price is tied for the AL lead in victories, it’s been a little more than six weeks since the Tampa Bay Rays’ young ace has won consecutive starts.
Facing the Detroit Tigers at Tropicana Field might give Price an opportunity to accomplish that feat.
Price will try to become the AL’s first 14-game winner by sending the Tigers to a 10th straight road defeat in Thursday’s four-game series finale.
A 10-2 start to 2010 helped Price (13-5, 2.90 ERA) earn his first start in an All-Star game, but the former No. 1 overall draft pick has alternated losses with wins in his last six outings, posting a 4.10 ERA over that span.
