David Price won his 20th game of the season Sunday to become the first pitcher in Tampa Bay Rays history to reach the coveted plateau. Price allowed five hits and two runs in seven innings of the Rays' 6-2 victory against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. The victory kept the Rays' slim postseason chances alive. But wins by the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles earlier in the day meant the Rays' only hope is to catch the Oakland A's for the second of the two wild card spots. The Rays have three games remaining, all with the Orioles in a series that begins Monday night at Tropicana Field. Oakland finishes its regular season with three games at home against the Texas Rangers. B.J. Upton hit two home runs Sunday to give him 28 on the season. Two more and he'll become the first 30-30 player in Rays history – 30 home runs, 30 steals. He has 31 steals.
