ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- David Price struck out a career-high 12 over seven innings, Casey Kotchman and Sam Fuld both homered, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Cleveland Indians 5-0 on Friday night.
Price (6-4) scattered four hits and walked two. The left-hander had given up 10 runs in 11 2-3 innings during his previous two starts.
The Rays went up 4-0 in the second on two-run homers by Kotchman and Fuld off Josh Tomlin (6-2). Relievers Joel Peralta and Adam Russell completed the four-hitter.
Tampa Bay's Matt Joyce, who started play hitting a major league-best .367, had three hits -- including a broken-bat RBI single during the seventh -- in four at-bats.
