Including today, David Price has allowed at least four earned runs in six of his 17 starts. Last season, he gave up four or more earned runs in only five of his 32 starts. Rays have hit lefties well all season, but they're without lefty-mashers Steve Pearce, Steven Souza Jr., Logan Morrison and Oswaldo Arcia.
