Rays vs. Giants, game 2: Price pitches faux complete game

New, comments

Myers walks off in the tenth.

With a little losing streak going on, we (supersticiously, absolutely not lazily or unorganizedly) went with a different approach: not recapping the game. At least one of us was watching, I swear, but he was drinking, not writing.

The results are in.

And they're good. Losing streak busted.

David Price pitched nine innings of five hit, five strikeout, no walk, one run ball, but at the end of the regular game he still wasn't in line for the win. The score was tied, 1-1. While he wasn't able to get credit for the win, he did put the Rays in a superior position. His opponent, Tim Lincecum, lasted (only) seven innings, and the Giants used four pitchers to cover innings eight and nine.

Fernando Rodney pitched around two hits in the top of the tenth, and the Rays loaded the bases in the bottom of the inning before Wil Myers singled in the winning run against Jean Machi to walk off and stay one game behind the Red Sox for the AL East lead.

You can, and should, read the far superior Giants-centric recap here. We'll be back to our normal coverage tomorrow.
