Tampa Bay Rays top Boston Red Sox

BOSTON (AP) — Ben Zobrist had three hits and drove in Tampa Bay’s first two runs during an eighth inning rally for the Rays in a 6-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night. Alex Cobb pitched seven strong innings and Matt Joyce added a solo homer in the ninth for the Rays in the series opener between the bottom two teams in the AL East. Cobb (9-9) allowed just one run on five hits, striking out three and walking one. Daniel Nava had an RBI double in the fourth for the Red Sox. It stood as the game’s only run until Tampa Bay got to Boston starter Clay Buchholz in the eighth. Buchholz (8-10) had a shutout going through seven, but a leadoff walk and hit batter cost him in the eighth when the Rays rallied for five runs with two outs. Zobrist doubled with two on to drive in the first two runs and scored on a single by David DeJesus. Buchholz hit Evan Longoria with a pitch and was replaced by Tommy Layne, whose wild pitch allowed both runners to advance and score easily when James Loney added a single. All five runs went to Buchholz, who allowed eight hits over 72?3 innings. He struck out six and walked one. TRAINER’S ROOM Rays: SS Yunel Escobar left the game with a sprained left knee after getting thrown out at the plate in the third inning.
