Rangers 12, Rays 4
David Price allowed three hits and five walks in 1 1/3 innings, fanning three. (Matt Slocum/AP)
David Price issued more walks, five, than he recorded outs, four, and that was pretty much that for the Rays, who dropped a third straight game after Price allowed six early runs. Jason Bartlett and Dioner Navarro (three-run shot) hit home runs.
