NEW YORK (AP) - David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays has won the AL Cy Young Award in one of the closest votes ever.
Price beat out 2011 winner Justin Verlander by only four points Wednesday in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.
Runner-up two years ago, Price was the pick this time for the league's top pitching prize. He received 14 of 28 first-place votes to edge Verlander, chosen first on 13 ballots.
Price went 20-5 to tie Jered Weaver for the American League lead in victories and winning percentage. The 27-year-old lefty had the lowest ERA at 2.56 and finished sixth in strikeouts with 205.
The NL Cy Young winner was to be announced later Wednesday.
