Price, Matsui key Rays win over Baltimore
David Price scattered three hits over 7 1-3 innings, Hideki Matsui homered and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 on Friday night.
Price (7-3), who struck out five and walked two, retired his first 13 batters. He got some defensive help when right fielder Matt Joyce made a full-extension, tumbling back-handed catch on J.J. Hardy's drive to end the fourth.
After Luke Scott drove in two on a single and Sean Rodriguez had an RBI bunt, Matsui hit a two-run homer off Wei-Yin Chen (4-2) to put the Rays up 5-0 in the first. Matsui, who had his contract purchased from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, has homered in two of his three games with Tampa Bay.
