Carlos Santana singled on a grounder through the left side, Jose Ramirez reached on an infield single, and Brandon Guyer -- who slashed .333/.461/.553 against lefties this season -- drove in a run on a soft liner to left-center.

Lonnie Chisenhall capped the scoring with a line-drive homer that just cleared the right-field wall. It was Chisenhall's first homer against a left-hander since Sept. 20, 2015, and his second against Price with the other coming on April 7, 2013.
