Reds leave the bases loaded in the ninth, fall 2-1 to Rays

CINCINNATI (AP) -- David Price took a shutout into the ninth and Matt Joyce homered, helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the slumping Reds 2-1 on Friday night for their first victory in Cincinnati.

The teams have a brief and lopsided interleague history. The Reds had won eight of their nine previous games, with Tampa Bay's only win coming at Tropicana Field on June 28, 2011, on Evan Longoria's game-ending homer.

Longoria singled home a run in the first inning on Friday, and Joyce added his homer to deep right field off Johnny Cueto (0-2) as the Rays finally got a victory in their second visit to Great American Ball Park. They also visited in 2005 and got swept while giving up 34 runs in three games.
