Garcia Beats Price in White Sox Victory
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Freddy Garcia outpitched David Price and Alex Rios hit a two-run homer to help the Chicago White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 on Friday night.

Garcia (4-3) won for the fourth time in his last five starts, giving up two runs and four hits in seven innings. The right-hander is 8-2 in his career against Tampa Bay.

Price (7-2), coming up short in his bid to become the AL's first eight-game winner, allowed three runs, four hits, four walks and had four strikeouts over seven innings. His other loss this season also came against the White Sox in a 4-1 loss in Chicago on April 20.

The Rays, with the major's best record at 33-16, have lost four of five.

Matt Thornton worked the final 1 1-3 innings for his second save.
