ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., July 7 (UPI) -- David Price tossed a complete-game eight-hitter Sunday and the Tampa Bay Rays finished a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox with a 3-1 decision.

Price (3-4) didn't allow a walk in notching his fifth career complete game, striking out five in a 98-pitch effort.

It was the left-hander's first home victory in nearly a year, coming in his second start since returning from a six-week stint on the disabled list.

Ben Zobrist, Sean Rodriguez and Jose Molina each provided an RBI for the Rays, who improved to 8-3 in their last 11 games overall.

Chicago's John Danks (2-6) absorbed the loss, yielding three runs on five hits over seven full frames. He walked two and fanned five.

Josh Phegley smacked his first career homer for the White Sox.
