'The Future' takes the mound

Rookie David Price, known around the Rays clubhouse as "The Future," just finished his first inning of work.

Price entered in the seventh inning against the Jays, the left-hander walked the first batter he faced on four pitches and missed the strike zone on the first two pitches to the next hiiter.

After that it was strikeout swinging.

Fly ball to shallow center.

Strikeout swinging.

The Rays lead 10-4, thanks to a five-run fifth that featured a grand slam by Pat Burrell.

Make that 11-4. Ray Sadler just went boardwalk. Not sure if the ball cleared the boardwalk in left field and landed in the lake, but take my word, it was a blast.

Price returns to the mound to start the eighth.
