ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Cody Ross homered and drove in four runs, Felix Doubront won his third consecutive start and the Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Thursday night.

Ross extended Boston’s lead to 5-2 on a two-run single off reliever Wade Davis with two outs in the eighth.

Matt Moore (1-4) gave up three runs and five hits in six innings for Tampa Bay, which had its four-game winning streak snapped.

Alfredo Aceves, the fifth Boston reliever, got four outs for his eighth save. He allowed B.J Upton’s RBI single with two outs in the eighth.
