Former Vanderbilt star David Price lost for the first time in seven starts Wednesday as the Tampa Bay Rays fell to Milwaukee 5-0.

Price (11-8) gave up four runs in seven innings as he failed to win a team-record seventh consecutive start.

Martin Maldonado put the Brewers up 2-0 with a two-run single in the second, an inning that included two walks. It was just the second time this season Price walked a pair in the same inning.

After Aramis Ramirez had a third-inning run-scoring single, Maldonado made it 4-0 when he drove in a run with a double in the sixth.

Yovani Gallardo pitched seven scoreless innings for the win.

Price’s start came on the eve of Major League Baseball’s trade deadline and was a clear indication the Rays plan on holding on to the former Cy Young Award winner for the rest of the season.
