There was rain and lightning and thunder and the bases were loaded and Ian Kinsler was up, so, yeah, the end to Sunday night's game was a little dicey for the Tampa Bay Rays. One swing and everything the Rays did for nearly nine innings against the Texas Rangers, the team with the best record in the major leagues, could have been washed away. But reliever Fernando Rodney speared Kinsler's line drive for the final out, sealing the Rays' 5-2 victory and making David Price a first-time winner against the Rangers. "Personally, for myself, I never beat those guys. First and foremost that feels great," Price said. "I'm pumped that we won. I can turn that page now." The Rays won their fourth straight series and handed the Rangers their first series loss of the season, snapping a streak of six straight series wins.
