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 [1] 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 [2], Jake McGee [3], Brad Boxberger [4], Enny Romero [5], Mike Montgomery [6], and Jeff Beliveau [7].

The Rays offense pounded out 16 hits off Red Sox pitching led by David DeJesus [8] and Matt Joyce who each had a pair.  The power was supplied by James Loney [9] and Sean Rodriguez [10] who both homered.

Clay Buchholz [11] started for the Red Sox and gave up an earned run in one inning of work. Rubby De La Rosa [12] followed and allowed four earned in two innings and Brayan Villarreal [13] 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 [14] raced all the way around from first to score on a David DeJesus triple.
