David Price continues to be money for the first-place Blue Jays. The ace left-hander held the Orioles to one run over seven innings this afternoon in a 5-1 victory. The effort gave him the 100th win of his career.

Price allowed just three hits while walking one and striking out eight. The lone run scored on an RBI single from Caleb Joseph in his final inning of work.

As for the offense, Jose Bautista hit a solo homer and an RBI double while the hot-hitting Ryan Goins went 2-for-4 with an RBI double of his own.

Price is now 14-5 with a 2.43 ERA on the year. He has a 2.15 ERA in seven starts since coming over to the Blue Jays and has allowed three earned runs or fewer in all of them.

The Blue Jays currently hold a one-game lead in the American League East, pending what happens with Rays and Yankees this afternoon.
