Tampa Bay Rays left-hander David Price will be trying to get his first win since May 13 on Sunday afternoon when he goes up against Brad Peacock and the Houston Astros.
David Price pitched eight innings against the Seattle Mariners last week and only allowed three earned runs, but he was saddled with the loss after getting no run support from his offense. He gave up seven hits in that game and walked just one while striking out 10. Price may be just 4-6 this year, but he also has struck out 111 batters in 99.2 innings and he has a 2.97 FIP.
None of the Astros have gone deep against Price yet, but third baseman Matt Dominguez is 2-for-5 against him with a double and a strikeout.
Brad Peacock went six innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday and only gave up one earned run, but he ended up with a no decision in a game the Diamondbacks ended up winning 4-1. He allowed just three hits in that outing and walked three while striking out four batters. Peacock is 2-4 with a 4.50 ERA this year, but does have 57 strikeouts and has only given up seven home runs so far.
Peacock, who has held left-handed batters to a .248 batting average this season, will be facing the Rays for the first time in his career on Sunday.
