Price allowed four earned runs and six hits in six innings Sunday against the White Sox. He struck out five, but did not give up a walk.

He didn't exactly have his best stuff and left the game down 4-0. It was an odd situation, though -- he had only fired 99 pitches, but thought his day was done after six. He retreated to the clubhouse and went into his post-start routine, and was somewhat surprised when manager Brad Ausmus came looking for him. It was labelled a 'miscommunication' and one we doubt will happen again.

Price will make his scheduled start Sunday despite the Tigers' game being postponed Saturday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The Tigers will stick with their rotation rather than pushing back their starters by one day to in order to not skip Kyle Ryan's turn. He has dominated the White Sox in two other starts this season, going 1-0 with a 1.06 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 17 innings of work.

Price scattered nine hits over 6.2 innings Tuesday, giving up one run while issuing zero walks and striking out seven against the Indians.

The southpaw is now 9-1 in his last 11 starts against the Indians, which make sense as much of the thump in their lineup comes from the left side. He finished strong Tuesday, retiring the side in the fifth and sitting down seven of the next eight hitters. Price's former teammate, Chris Archer, may be the talk of the American League, but Price has put together a Cy Young-worthy start to the season in his own right. He will close out the week with a home start against the White Sox on Sunday.

Price pitched just five innings Wednesday against the Reds, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out six. He received no decision in the rain-delayed, 13-inning loss.

Neither Price nor Reds starter Johnny Cueto came out for more after an hour-plus of rain delay, leaving both stud pitchers with pedestrian lines. This was Price's second-shortest outing of the season, but he was at just 72 pitches, and thus the star lefty -- who was coming off consecutie complete games -- had a good chance to finish seven frames if not for the rain. He'll face the Indians (whom he shut out June 12) on Monday.

Price was dominant Friday night, hurling a seven-hit complete game shutout over Cleveland. He fired eight strikes and needed only 93 pitches.

He's now 6-2 with a 2.44 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. He didn't allow many base runners and when he did, his teammates bailed him out -- they turned four double plays. Just one hit -- a double -- went for extra bases and he didn't issue a walk.

Price threw seven solid innings Sunday before getting into trouble in the eighth inning against the Angels. He took a no-hitter into the fourth and gave up eight hits in 7.2 innings. He struck out six and walked four.

He loaded the bases with one out in the eighth and got Carlos Perez to pop up for the second out before being lifted. But the next batter took an 0-1 Joba Chamberlain slider up the middle, scoring two -- both of which were on Price's bill. Still, it was the fourth straight quality start for the lefty.

Price struck out 12 over his 6.2 innings Thursday against Houston, but didn't receive a decision after allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk.

It's his first double-digit-strikeout start of the year, as Price's whiffs have been lagging a bit to start the season, but there's nothing quite like a 12-strikeout day to get your stats looking more normal. Other than the bit of a downtick in punchouts, Price has been nothing if not his typical self this year, with his numbers hanging right around their career norms.

Price allowed three solo home runs on Saturday over 6.2 innings, but no other damage while striking out nine in a no-decision.

He continues to be not quite as sharp as expected, but Price's 3.40 ERA and 1.25 WHIP aren't sinking anyone's fantasy staff. He's try to improve on his 7.1 K/9 rate in his next start on Thursday, at home to the Astros.

Price (hamstring) has been confirmed as Saturday's starter against the Cardinals.

The hamstring strain, which Price suffered after slipping on a bat while backing up home plate last Friday, won't even end up costing the lefty a full turn in the rotation. He was bumped back two days, but evidently Price showed no ill effects in his throwing sessions during the week as there's been nothing to suggest he'll be limited at all against St. Louis.
