Price Wins 1st Of season, Rays Beat White Sox

CHICAGO (AP) -- David Price struck out nine in winning for first time this season, Ben Zobrist hit a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Chicago White Sox 8-3 on Sunday.

The 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings. The Rays lost all five of Price's five previous starts this year and were the second team to lose in the first five starts by a reigning Cy Young winner. The Minnesota Twins lost in Frank Viola's first seven games in 1989.

Price (1-2) walked two and threw 119 pitches.

Jose Lobaton homered for Tampa Bay, which improved to 4-9 on the road.

Zobrist also had an RBI single in the ninth and Evan Longoria added more insurance with a double to score Zobrist.

Paul Konerko hit a two-run home run for Chicago, who are 1-5 against left-handed starters.
