Toronto Blue Jays lose season opener

Tampa Bay Rays win 9-2

David Price took a shutout into the eighth inning and Matt Joyce drove in three runs Monday to help the Tampa Bay Rays begin the season with a 9-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Price (1-0) allowed two runs and six hits over 7 1-3 innings to beat R.A. Dickey in a matchup of 2012 Cy Young Award winners. The hard-throwing lefty walked one and struck out six before a crowd of 31,042 at Tropicana Field - the Rays' ninth consecutive sellout for a home opener.

Joyce had a sacrifice fly and two-run double off Dickey (0-1), who yielded six two-out runs in five innings.

Evan Longoria got the Rays going with a first-inning RBI single and Wil Myers drove in two more when he singled with the bases loaded in the second.
