The reigning Cy Young Award winner scattered seven hits and struck out four in his complete game win.  It was the fourth complete game of the season for Price (10-8)

The victory sends Tampa Bay to Cleveland for a wild card playoff game against the Indians on Wednesday.  The winner faces Boston in the American League Division Series beginning Friday.

Longoria’s two run homer came off Martin Perez (10-6) in the third inning which staked the Rays to a 3-0 lead.  That was all Price would need as the threw 118 pitches in his performance that snapped the Rangers’ seven game winning streak.
