SEATTLE (AP) — David Price gave up one run in his second complete game this season, and the Tampa Bay Rays rallied in the ninth inning against Seattle closer Fernando Rodney to beat the Mariners 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma shut out the Rays for eight innings, allowing four hits, before giving way to Rodney. David DeJesus led off the ninth with a home run to tie the game, and Rodney (1-2) gave up a go-ahead RBI single to Matt Joyce five batters later.

Price (4-3) retired the side in order in the bottom of the ninth to complete the victory for the Rays. He kept the Mariners off balance most of the night, allowing one run and six hits. Eight of his 12 strikeouts came on called third strikes.
