PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – Evan Longoria hit a two-run double Friday, helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 despite a rough outing for AL Cy Young Award winner David Price.
Price was hit hard, allowing eight hits — though only two runs — in four innings. Kevin Frandsen had two hits off the left-hander, including a solo homer in the third.
Michael Young also drove in a run off Price with a first-inning single, the last of three straight hits the Phillies put together to begin the game.
The Rays minimized the damage against their ace with good defense.
