Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - David Price pitched seven innings for his major league-leading 16th win, and the Tampa Bay Rays continued their amazing shutout streak of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in a 7-0 victory Thursday night.

The Rays have blanked the Angels the last 32 innings. Tampa Bay shut out the Angels in the final two contests of a series in late July and has won nine of the last 10 meetings.

Price (16-4) continued his spectacular pitching by allowing three hits and striking out eight batters to win his eighth straight decision. The winning streak set a Rays record.

The left-hander is unbeaten over his last 11 starts and hasn't lost since June 13 against the New York Mets.

Ben Zobrist, B.J. Upton and Evan Longoria homered for the Rays, who snapped a two-game skid and won for the eighth time in the last 10 contests.

Dan Haren (8-10) was touched for seven hits and five runs over 3 2/3 innings, as the Angels lost for the fourth time in six games.
