Heading into the final week of the season, Tampa Bay ace David Price and Washington ace Gio Gonzalez are tied in the standings for the Warren Spahn Award, which is given to baseball's top left-handed pitcher.

Price's start last week vaulted him to the top, but Sunday's start against the White Sox put him in the tie.
