OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - David Price outdueled Jesse Chavez to win for the first time in four starts, and the Detroit Tigers bounced back from a shutout a day earlier to beat the Oakland Athletics 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Price (4-1) gave up five hits, struck out three and walked one in seven innings for a third straight winning decision, but his first victory since May 2 at Kansas City.

Former A's outfielder Rajai Davis hit a sacrifice fly in the first against Chavez (1-5). Slugger Miguel Cabrera returned to the Tigers lineup after sitting out Monday and extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a ninth-inning single.

Plate umpire Jeff Kellogg took a ball in the mask in the ninth but stayed in the game after being checked, and then a fan ran onto the field to cause another delay.
