ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 24 (UPI) -- David Price hurled a five-hit shutout Tuesday and the Tampa Bay Rays belted four homers in their 5-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

Price (3-1) tamed the Angels on five hits, issuing only one walk while striking out six en route to his second career shutout and first since 2010.

The left-hander allowed only one runner to reach as far as third base and tossed 80 of his 119 pitches for strikes in the dominating performance, which handed the Rays a win in the opener of a three-game set.

Desmond Jennings, Luke Scott, B.J. Upton and Carlos Pena each hit solo homers in the victory.

The Angels' Ervin Santana (0-4) lost a fourth straight start to start the season, allowing five runs on eight hits over five frames.
