Yovani Gallardo outdueled Tampa Bay ace David Price, as the Milwaukee Brewers salvaged the finale of a three-game series at Tropicana Field with a 5-0 victory over the Rays on Wednesday.

Price has been the subject of trade rumors with the non-waiver deadline approaching Thursday afternoon. However, Tampa Bay's recent surge has quelled much of the speculation with the All-Star lefty still under contract for next season.

Tampa Bay lost for just the second time in its last 13 games and fell two games under .500. The Rays haven't been at the .500 mark since they were 10-10 after a game on April 22.

Price (11-8) surrendered four runs -- three earned -- on seven hits over seven innings on Wednesday in his first loss since June 20 against Houston. He had won six straight starts and was trying to become the first Rays pitcher ever to win seven in a row.

Gallardo (6-5) picked up a win for the first time since June 19 at Arizona. He had been 0-1 in six starts since, and on Wednesday yielded just three hits with a walk and five strikeouts over seven scoreless innings. The right-hander also threw 7 2/3 shutout innings in his last outing five days ago against the New York Mets in a no-decision.

Martin Maldonado went 3-for-4 with four runs batted in for Milwaukee, which halted a three-game skid. Aramis Ramirez chipped in a pair of hits, including run-scoring single.
