David Price hopped aboard Tuesday night.

He made a complete ace of himself against the Angels in the Tampa Bay Rays' 5-0 win.

This was the Price who won 19 games two seasons ago, the Price who finished second in the AL Cy Young voting, who threw down against New York and Boston, pitching big in the big games.

This wasn't the Price who came up empty last season in 162, but was saved in the end, only to come up empty again in the postseason.

Tuesday was the Price the Rays need to be the team to beat in the AL East.

He threw the second shutout of his career Tuesday: nine innings, five singles, six strikeouts, one walk.
