David Price sets Rays' franchise record with 15th win

Aug 10, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

David Price wasn’t at his best last night, needing 115 pitches to record 15 outs and allowing nine baserunners in five innings of two-run ball, but still beat the Tigers for his AL-leading 15th win.
With the victory Price is also now the Rays’ all-time leader in single-season wins:

DAVID PRICE         2010     15
James Shields       2008     14
Edwin Jackson       2008     14
Rolando Arrojo      1998     14
Jeff Niemann        2009     13
Andy Sonnanstine    2008     13
Scott Kazmir        2007     13

Obviously only existing since 1998 plays a big role in the franchise’s unimpressive win leaders, but there’s a lot more to it than just that. In the 13 seasons it took the Rays to have one 15-game winner, there were 319 different instances of a pitcher winning 15 or more games.
