Rays Vs. Royals: Tampa Bay Two Hit In 1-0 Loss

A third-inning double from Luke Scott and an infield single from Matt Joyce in the bottom of the ninth inning were the only things preventing the Tampa Bay Rays from being on the wrong side of a no-hitter yet again on Tuesday night.

As a result, a dominant starting effort from David Price went for naught as the Rays fell to the Kansas City Royals 1-0 in 10 innings.

The game's only run came as a result of an infield single from Jeff Franceour in the top of the 10th. He advanced to second on a throwing error and then scored on a single from Erik Hosmer. Joel Peralta picked up the loss for Tampa Bay.

What could be lost in the discussion of the offense's ineptitude was Price's performance -- 8 innings, 1 hit allowed, 0 earned runs. However, the night belonged to Luke Hochevar, who matched Price inning for inning but allowed only one hit and struck out 10 Rays batters.

For the latest on the Rays, head over to DRays Bay.
