Rays Crush Red Sox 8-0

Archer Sharp, Molina Shows Off Wheels, Rodriguez & Loney Flash Power

The Tampa Bay Rays received solid pitching and banged out 16 base hits in crushing the Boston Red Sox in Fort Myers.

Chris Archer started for the Rays and worked two scoreless innings allowing just one base hit and striking out one and thanks to a double play ball faced the minimum six hitters.



Following Archer to the mound were Mark Lowe, Jake McGee, Brad Boxberger, Enny Romero, Mike Montgomery, and Jeff Beliveau.

The Rays offense pounded out 16 hits off Red Sox pitching led by David DeJesus and Matt Joyce who each had a pair.  The power was supplied by James Loney and Sean Rodriguez who both homered.

Clay Buchholz started for the Red Sox and gave up an earned run in one inning of work. Rubby De La Rosa followed and allowed four earned in two innings and Brayan Villarreal gave up three earned in his one inning of work.

The play of the day came in the bottom of the second inning when Jose Molina raced all the way around from first to score on a David DeJesus triple.
