CINCINNATI, Ohio -- David Price wished he had one pitch back. The left-hander took a shutout into the ninth inning Friday night before giving up a homer to Joey Votto, and the Tampa Bay Rays wound up holding on for a 2-1 victory over the Reds, their first in Cincinnati. The teams have a brief and lopsided interleague history. The Reds had won eight of their nine previous games, with Tampa Bays only win coming at Tropicana Field on June 28, 2011, on Evan Longorias game-ending homer. This one had all the drama at the end. "Never had a doubt," Price said. Longoria singled home a run in the first inning and Matt Joyce connected in the third against 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. Price (2-0) allowed four hits and one walk, losing his shutout when Votto hit an opposite-field drive with one out. He left a pitch over the outside part of the plate, costing him a chance at his third career shutout. "That stinks," said Price, who threw 114 pitches. "I definitely wanted to finish that game." Grant Balfour relieved, got Ryan Ludwick on a called third strike, then walked the next two batters and threw a wild pitch that let them advance to second and third. He pitched around Devin Mesoraco, who has been hitting well since his return from the disabled list, and got pinch-hitter Brayan Pena to take a called third strike. "He (Mesoraco) is hot right now and Im going to be smart," said Balfour, who is 3 for 3 in save chances. "I played the odds and rolled the dice there." Despite the teams limited history, they have one close connection. First-year Reds manager Bryan Price pitched for Joe Maddon when the Rays manager ran the Double-A Midland Angels in the 1980s. Price joked before the game that they got to know each other during Maddons trips to the mound in the third and fourth innings to replace him. No early exits in this one. Both starters hung in there against struggling offences. Tampa Bay has scored a total of eight runs in its last five games. The Reds have scored only 28 runs overall, the second-fewest in the National League. Both were wasteful again. Cueto needed 26 pitches to get through the first inning, when he walked two with only one out. Longoria singled home a run, but thats all the Rays could manage. Joyce led off the third inning with a homer that landed way up in the right-field seats for his team-high second of the season. "In the first inning, I didnt feel like I was ready," Cueto said. "I felt slow. I was a little down on myself. After that, everything clicked in and I was all right." Tampa Bay had chances for a lot more. The Rays stranded four runners in scoring position in the first five innings against Cueto, who gave up five hits and walked four over seven innings. The Reds wasted leadoff doubles by Mesoraco in the third and Brandon Phillips in the fourth. Phillips had two of Cincinnatis hits off Price. NOTES: RH Alex Cobb makes his first career appearance against the Reds on Saturday. RH Alfredo Simon makes his second start for Cincinnati, filling in while Mat Latos recovers from knee surgery. ... The Rays recalled OF Kevin Kiermaier from Triple-A Durham. ... Tampa Bay LH Cesar Ramos will start Sunday in place of LH Matt Moore, on the DL with a sore pitching elbow. ... Maddon invited 1978 NL MVP Dave Parker to meet the Rays before the game. Parker grew up in Cincinnati and coached with Maddon on the Angels staff. ... Bryan Price lost a replay challenge in the ninth, when he thought Phillips foot had been hit by a pitch. He lost the challenge: The ball bounced and deflected off the catchers mitt before hitting the foot. Austin Johnson Jersey .
