David Price didn't get the decision in his 1st start for the Detroit Tigers after coming over from the Tampa Bay Rays. In the start, Price allowed 3 runs and 8 hits (including 2 homers) in 8.2 innings. He didn't issue any walks while striking out 10. Price has been dominant as of late and is 7 - 2 in his last 10 starts. Last season, Price was 10 - 8 with a 3.33 ERA in 27 starts for the Rays.
In 2013, Price was 1 - 0 with a 3.60 ERA in 2 starts against the Blue Jays. This season, Price is undefeated in his 2 starts against Toronto.
Mark Buehrle took the loss in his last outing after getting pounded in just 4 innings of work. In that start, Buehrle surrendered 4 runs and 10 hits (including 2 home runs) while walking 3 and striking out 3. After an improbable start, Buehrle has come back to earth. He started the season 10 - 1 and is now 1 -6 in his last 10 outings. Last season, Buehrle was 12 - 10 with a 4.15 ERA in 33 starts.
In 2013, Buehrle was lit up in his only start against the Tigers and took the loss after giving up 6 runs and 7 hits in 4.1 innings. Overall, Detroit is batting .297 against Buehrle with 76 hits, 8 homers and 41 RBIs in 256 at-bats.
