Detroit Tigers starter David Price allowed nine straight hits in his team's 8-4 loss to the New York Yankees on Aug. 27. 

Price said it's "probably the worst game I've ever had in my life," per MLB.com's Jason Beck:

"David Price had to figure out he'd had his fill of historic bad luck last week, when he became the first pitcher in the last century to throw a one-hitter with neither an earned run nor a walk and still lose. 

"Then came the third inning Wednesday night. 

"'I've had bad games before -- not that bad,' Price said after an eight-run third in an 8-4 loss to the Yankees. 'That's probably the worst game I've ever had in my life.'

"For a game, it was his worst. For an inning, it was arguably the worst for a Major League pitcher in a quarter century. 

"The same pitcher who allowed one hit all afternoon against (the) Tampa Bay (Rays) last week allowed nine consecutive hits in one inning without recording an out. The same Tigers bullpen that had to spring to action in the second inning for Major League fill-ins Robbie Ray and Buck Farmer had to go to work for a former American League Cy Young Award winner with nobody out in the third. 

"As a result, the same Tigers team that had seemingly left its pitching struggles behind in Minnesota had another episode. And a Tigers squad that seemed to be regaining momentum in the playoff chase lost ground to the Royals, now 2 1/2 games up after their second straight comeback win. 

"Detroit also missed a chance to pass up the Mariners for the second AL Wild Card spot. Seattle lost to Texas earlier in the day. 

"The way the evening unfolded, they weren't exactly in the mood for scoreboard watching.

"'We can't really control that,' Torii Hunter said. 'All we can do is control what we can control, and that's playing on a day-to-day basis.'"

On the other hand, ESPN New York's Wallace Matthews notes the Yankees' scoring outburst was a welcome sight for a team struggling with its offense all season long:

"For most of the 2014 season, the team formerly known as the Bronx Bombers has been anything but. Choose any offensive yardstick you like, and chances are the 2014 New York Yankees are at or near the bottom of the American League pack. Despite being shored up with an infusion of $283 million invested in three players -- Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran -- their lineup would have to improve simply to achieve mediocrity. 

"In fact, the 2014 Yankees offense pales even in comparison with (their) 2013 counterpart, which was cobbled together out of castoffs and has-beens trying to take the place of a solid handful of injured stars.

"And yet, on any given night, even an offense as unremarkable as the Yankees' can have a remarkable night, and that was Wednesday night at Comerica Park, against one of the most formidable pitchers in the American League.

"Facing Detroit Tigers left-hander David Price, winner of the 2012 AL Cy Young Award and expected to be one of the most sought-after commodities on this winter's free-agent market, nine Yankees came to at bat in the third inning, and nine Yankees got a hit before Price was able to record a single out. 

"In fact, he never did get one. After a single by Francisco Cervelli drove in the sixth run of the inning, manager Brad Ausmus came out to rescue Price, and the Yankees added two more runs on sacrifice flies before the inning finally came to an end on a groundout, nearly 45 minutes after it began. 

"'It's fun, but you don't see that very often,' said Derek Jeter, playing the role of Captain Obvious for this night. 'We had some good at-bats. That was the only inning we scored, but that was a big inning for us.' 

"Biggest of the year, in fact, and the first time an American League team had gotten nine straight hits since -- wait for it! -- 1996, when the 40-year-old Jeter was a rookie. It was also the worst single inning in Price's seven-year career in terms of hits and runs allowed." 

The 29-year-old Price has an 83-49 win-loss record coupled with 1,100 strikeouts and a 3.21 career ERA in 180 regular-season games through Aug. 27, per ESPN stats
