DETROIT (AP) — All-Star David Price came within an out of a complete game, and the Tampa Bay Rays climbed out of last place in the AL East with a 7-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night.

The Rays have won eight of nine to move a half-game ahead of defending champion Boston in the standings. Tampa Bay had sole possession of the cellar for 39 consecutive days.

Price (8-7) received his fourth All-Star selection before the game, and he allowed three runs and seven hits before being pulled amid rain, thunder and lightning with two outs in the ninth. Jake McGee came on with two on and got the final out for his fifth save in six chances.

Rick Porcello (11-5) allowed seven runs and 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings.
