ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - David Price struck out a career-high 12 over seven innings, Casey Kotchman and Sam Fuld homered, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Cleveland Indians, 5-0, on Friday night.

Price (6-4) scattered four hits and walked two. The lefthander had given up 10 runs in 112/3 innings during his previous two starts.

The Rays went up, 4-0, in the second on two-run homers by Kotchman and Fuld off Josh Tomlin (6-2). Relievers Joel Peralta and Adam Russell completed the four-hitter.

Tampa Bay's Matt Joyce, who started play hitting a major-league-best .367, had three hits - including a broken-bat RBI single during the seventh - in four at-bats.

Tomlin allowed four runs and 10 hits in six innings for the AL Central-leading Indians, who have lost three straight. Cleveland has been outscored, 23-4, over that stretch.

Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore was activated from the 15-day disabled list and went 0 for 4, including two strikeouts, as the designated hitter. He had been on the DL with a bruised right kneecap after making a hard, late slide into second base May 10.

Price was OK after it appeared he took a glancing blow to the top of the head from part of a broken-bat on Sizemore's seventh-inning grounder. He briefly rubbed his head and smiled when teammates came to check on him.

Cleveland manager Manny Acta said Sizemore will be the DH throughout the three-game series.

Acta moved slumping cleanup batter Carlos Santana to seventh in the order. Third-place hitter Shin-Soo Choo was rested. Orlando Cabrera was shifted from sixth to second, with Asdrubal Cabrera going from the two-hole to third.

Santana had been hitless in his previous 19 at-bats before hitting a two-out double in the second. He was left stranded when Austin Kearns struck out.

Price worked out of a two-on, one-out jam during the sixth by striking out Shelley Duncan and Matt LaPorta.

Red Sox 6, Tigers 3

DETROIT - Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford homered in a five-run third inning to help Boston top Detroit.

The Red Sox won for the 12th time in 14 games and have scored 34 runs in their last three.

Boston's Tim Wakefield (2-1) picked up his 195th career win, allowing two runs on five hits in seven innings.

Rookie Charlie Furbush kept the Tigers in the game with five shutout innings of relief. He has not allowed a run in 82/3 innings in his first two major-league appearances.

The five-run inning was Boston's third in the first two games of its four-game trip to Detroit.

The Tigers took a 2-1 lead on a massive second-inning homer by Jhonny Peralta. The ball, estimated to have traveled 430 feet, took one bounce in the right-centerfield stands and landed on the concourse between statues of Hank Greenberg and Charlie Gehringer.

Blue Jays 4, White Sox 2

TORONTO - Yunel Escobar doubled home the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning and Toronto beat Chicago.

Righthander Casey Janssen (2-0) pitched one inning of relief for the win as the Blue Jays snapped a three-game losing streak.

Shawn Camp got one out and Jon Rauch finished in the ninth for his sixth save.

Chicago's Mark Buehrle (4-4) had won two straight starts and three of four overall, but lost for the first time since April 27 at New York.

Dropped from fifth to seventh in the order, struggling White Sox slugger Adam Dunn walked four times.

White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham left in the third inning after he was hit in the face by Alex Rios' throw from the outfield. The ball bounced over Beckham's glove and appeared to hit him above the left eye. Beckham's eye was swollen but he did not suffer any vision damage. He was taken for X-rays.

Angels 6, Twins 5

MINNEAPOLIS - Maicer Izturis hit a go-ahead RBI single in the ninth inning after Los Angeles scored five runs in the eighth, and the Angels got by the Twins.

Erick Aybar's three-run homer ignited the eight-inning rally. Alberto Callaspo's infield single and Russell Branyan's sacrifice fly then forged a tie for the Angels.

Torii Hunter saved the Angels by ending the eighth inning with a blooper-reel catch of a shallow fly with a runner on second. Hunter called off Peter Bourjos, but bobbled the ball and Bourjos stuck his glove out. Together, they made sure it didn't hit the ground, and the play went down in the scorebook as a rare 8-9 put-out.
