AUG 11, 2014 11:32p ET
Smyly struck out nine in a career-high 7 2-3 innings to beat the Rangers for the second time this season. The left-hander hasn't allowed Texas an earned run in three appearances, including a relief outing when he was still with Detroit.
Smyly (7-10), who lost at Oakland five days after the Price deal at the non-waiver trading deadline July 31, struck out the final batter he faced, Shin-Soo Choo, for the second out with runners at second and third in the eighth.
Colby Lewis (8-9) couldn't build on the momentum of his second career shutout, giving up five runs - two earned - in five innings.
