9: David Price had a replacement for the stolen replica of his dog, Astro, back on the dugout and this time with protection. Evan Longoria got a larger plastic dog at a shop and gave it to Price so Astro would have protection. "It's his body guard," Longoria said. Price dubbed the dog The Beast. "Astro will be watching the game, and The Beast will be watching Astro's back," Price said. The original Astro-the minature version version that was part of the giveaway item to Rays fans-was stolen by a Texas fan during Friday's game. Rookie Matt Moore got an assist in the matter because he had the extra Astro in his backpack. "Matt Moore saved the day again," Price said. | The Rays pitchers are glad to see some Rays fans. | Our young super stars
