Price becomes Rays first 15 game winner with 6-3 over the Tigers

The Tigers made it close by pulling to within one run in the bottom of the 8th. But the Rays added 2 in the top of the 9th the secure victory over Detroit and move back to 1 1/2 games of the NYY in the AL East while snapping a 5 game losing streak.

In the meantime David Price (15-5) became the first 15 game winner in Rays history and position himself as a possible 20 game winner and still in the running for a Cy Young award.

This writer has not always been a Price fan. But after this season he has won me over. This guy is super competitive. He's probably the most competitve player on this young TB team. Is that enough to make the playoffs? I don't know. But like Jeter at NY and Ortiz at Boston, every team needs a leader. Price and Longoria definitely qualify for that position.

Be looking for Hellickson to get the call up for a few turns with Jeff Neiman on the DL with shoulder pain. That may not be a bad thing, we are going to need his arm for a playoff run anyway, Comments?
