ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Jarred Cosart took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of his major league debut, and the Houston Astros beat AL Cy Young Award winner David Price 2-1 on Friday night to end the Tampa Bay Rays' season-best, eight-game winning streak.

 

Cosart (1-0) limited the Rays, who have won 10 of 12 during a 14-game stretch against the American League's three worst teams, to a pair of walks before All-Star Ben Zobrist singled with one out in the seventh. Evan Longoria grounded into a double play to end the inning.

 

The 23-year-old right-hander also yielded a single to James Loney in the eighth and was removed after walking pinch-hitter Kelly Johnson leading off the ninth. The rookie threw 96 pitches - 54 for strikes.

 

Carlos Corporan's two-run, first-inning single provided all the offensive support Cosart needed to beat Price (3-5), who allowed eight hits and struck out three.
