Rays at Red Sox

Rays at Red Sox

Jesus Sucre went 2 for 4 with a homer and two RBIs while Lucas Duda chipped in the other Tampa Bay run, despite going 0 for 3 at the dish.

The comeback win Tuesday and win Wednesday, coinciding with the New York Yankees blowing a 6-1 lead and losing Tuesday, left the Red Sox four games ahead of New York atop the American League East. Wednesday, the Yankees won 9-1 in Baltimore to bring their deficit back to 3 1/2 games.

The win improved the Rays to 71-73 and kept them within 4½ games of the second American League wild card, now held by the Twins.

Boston is in a strong position to clinch a win in the three-game series when it sends ace Chris Sale to the mound on Saturday opposite Tampa Bay's Matt Andriese.

That's why this start - which was just the second time this season he hadn't pitched into the sixth inning - really does nothing to define what the Red Sox have in Porcello.

Pedroia's seventh homer barely cleared the Green Monster in left field two batters into the Red Sox's first.

The Red Sox acquired Nunez to take over at the hot corner for the stretch run, but have been forced to adjust their plan with the arrival of prospect Rafael Devers. An opposite field double down the line by Brad Miller was followed by Wilson Ramos' bloop RBI single into right field, tying the game at 1-1.

Mitch Moreland drew a leadoff walk in the second and scored on a Christian Vazquez single. He returned to the lineup after missing Friday's game with minor back spasms, then singled in his first at-bat, stole second but got up gingerly after a headfirst slide.

The Red Sox and Rays wrap up their series on Sunday, September 10 at 1:30 p.m.

"A good step obviously in his progression to game activity", manager John Farrell said.

The Boston-born righty, a big Red Sox fan until he signed with the Rays in 2006, is 4-1 with a 3.34 ERA in his career in Fenway Park. In his previous six starts leading into Sunday, he had totaled a 4.54 ERA, but in four of those games he gave up three runs or less.
