The longest current winning streak in the American League belongs to the Rays — a team that might also boast the AL’s Cy Young Award winner.
David Price was at it again on Saturday night, allowing just two runs over seven innings while striking out five as Tampa Bay rolled to its fifth straight win with a 4-2 defeat of the Twins.
Price now has a 2.50 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 23 starts this season. The 26-year-old lefty has fanned 151 batters and walked only 48 in 155 total frames.
The Rays will look to make it six straight in Sunday’s series-finale with Minnesota.
Price, who finished second in the Cy Young Award race in 2010, pitches next against the Angels.
