David Price picked up his 6th straight victory in his last outing behind another impressive effort. Price held the opposition to 3 runs and 8 hits (including a home run) in 8 innings of work. He struck out 10 without issuing any walks. In his last 10 starts, Price is 7 - 3 and is showing no signs of slowing down.
