ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — David Price allowed only one hit in his first start against his former team, an RBI triple to Brandon Guyer, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 1-0 Thursday to avoid a three-game sweep.

Ben Zobrist reached on a throwing error by shortstop Eugenio Suarez scored on Guyer’s hit. Price then retired his final 23 batters, nine on strikeouts, to finish an eight-inning complete game.

Alex Cobb (9-6) scattered two hits, walked two and struck out six over seven innings, improving to 7-0 in his last 10 starts. After Brad Boxberger worked out of an eighth-inning jam, Jake McGee got three outs for his 14th save and complete a four-hitter.

Kevin Kiermaier, inserted as a defensive replacement in right field, made diving catch on Rajai Davis’ flare with a runner on second and one out in the eighth.
