PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) - AL Cy Young winner David Price pitched one scoreless inning and Evan Longoria tested his surgically-repaired hamstring on the basepaths and had an RBI single Tuesday during Tampa Bay's rain-shortened 7-2 victory over a Houston Astros split-squad.

Price allowed a hit and walked one in a 19-pitch outing. Longoria singled and was thrown out trying to score from second in the first inning, then had another hit before scoring on Leslie Anderson's two-run, second-inning triple off Astros starter Jordan Lyles.

Meanwhile, Price escaped injury when Marwin Gonzalez's grounder glanced off his pitching wrist before shortstop Ben Zobrist fielded the ball and threw to first for the out.

The game was stopped by rain with the Rays batting in the bottom of the sixth.
