Rays beat Tigers 7-3, win series
(DETROIT) – David Price allowed a homer to start the bottom of the ninth inning, and that was only the beginning of his problems as he tried to close out a win. Rain began falling steadily at Comerica Park, a streak of lightning flashed in the sky behind center field and loud thunder claps accompanied the Tampa Bay All-Star's pursuit of a complete game. Eventually Rays manager Joe Maddon removed Price with two on and two out. The Rays held on for a 7-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night to climb out of last place in the AL East. The Rays have won three straight and eight of nine. Price (8-7) received his fourth All-Star selection before the game, and he allowed three runs and seven hits before being pulled amid a brief spell of bad weather in the ninth. Rick Porcello (11-5) allowed seven runs and 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings. After pitching back to back shutouts, Porcello says he 25 inning scoreless streak ended before he could retire a batter. The Tigers got home runs from Torii Hunter and J.D. Martinez and an RBI sacrifice fly from Miguel Cabrera. Prior to the game, the AL Central-leading Tigers found out they put three players on the All-Star team, Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Max Scherzer. Porcello is a candidate in online voting for the final American League spot.

White Sox shut out Mariners 1-0
(CHICAGO) – Hector Noesi thinks he is a better pitcher than he was when he struggled at the start of the season. One of his former teams got a closer look at his improvement on Sunday. Noesi pitched five-hit ball into the seventh inning for his first win in a month, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Noesi (3-6) struck out five and walked two in 6 2/3 innings, bouncing back from a shaky outing against the Los Angeles Angels. The right-hander pitched for Seattle for parts of three seasons before he was traded to Texas after two April relief appearances. Chicago finished with just two hits after it had four in Saturday's 3-2 loss in 14 innings. But Conor Gillaspie scored on a wild pitch in the first and Noesi combined with two relievers on a five-hitter. Seattle right-hander Taijuan Walker (1-1) lasted just four innings in his second start of the season. The 21 year old Walker struggled with his control in his first loss in five major league appearances.

Nationals edge Cubs 2-1
(WASHINGTON, DC) - After Jordan Zimmermann put the Washington Nationals in position to win on the mound, Denard Span's legs and Ryan Zimmerman's bat made sure they beat the Chicago Cubs. Zimmerman's eighth inning single drove in Span for the go-ahead run as the surging Nationals capped a strong weekend with a 2-1 win over the Cubs on Sunday. The expected pitcher's duel took place as Zimmermann outdueled Jake Arrieta over six innings and left with a 1-0 lead. The Cubs tied it in the seventh on Starlin Castro's sacrifice fly against Drew Storen. Tyler Clippard (6-2) worked out of trouble in the eighth inning. Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth and earned his 21st save for the Nationals, who have won seven of eight. Washington moved within one-half game of NL East-leading Atlanta. The Nationals took two of three games in the series, including 13-0 on Saturday to break Chicago's four-game winning streak. Following this weekend's blockbuster trade that sent starters Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Oakland A's, Arrieta inherited the No. 1 role in the Cubs rotation. He has pitched to that level lately.
