With three regulars out of their already depleted lineup, the Rays knew they were going to have to find a way to win Monday, and against a tough opponent, former teammate Edwin Jackson.
They turned to their trusty combo of pitching and defense, and they came out with a 5-0 win over Jackson and the White Sox.
"If we're not hitting on all cylinders, we have to be hitting on defense," left-hander David Price said. "That's what we've got to do."
The Rays did that and more, with five highlight-reel quality plays -- and a strong eight-inning effort from Price.
"I'll be watching ESPN later to see how many of those are on the top 10," Price said.
