MLB: Tampa Bay 3, Philadelphia 2 (1st gm)

June 24, 2012 at 4:59 PM   |   Comments

PHILADELPHIA, June 24 (UPI) -- David Price fired seven effective innings and Carlos Pena homered Sunday, boosting Tampa Bay to a 3-2 win over Philadelphia in Game 1 of doubleheader.

Price (10-4) surrendered only one run on four hits, striking out eight en route to his fourth victory in five appearances.

The left-hander worked around three walks in the 112-pitch effort, helping the Rays break a three-game losing streak and evening their three-game interleague road series.

Burke Badhenhop allowed a run in eighth but Jake McGee got the Rays out of a bases-loaded, two-out jam by inducing Michael Martinez to pop out, and Fernando Rodney held on for his 21st save to nail down the victory.

Pena's three-run blast in the eighth off Anthony Bastardo (2-2) erased a 1-0 Rays deficit.

Phillies starter Cole Hamels tossed seven shutout innings in the no-decision, yielding only three hits while striking out seven.

Jimmy Rollins went 3-for-5 with a solo homer in the loss.
