Rays Top Red Sox In Game One, 2-1

Jared Wickerham / Getty Images / Jake Peavy was the starting pitcher Thursday for Boston.

David DeJesus had a solo homer and drew a bases-loaded walk, and Tampa Bay’s bullpen pitched 4 1-3 scoreless innings to lift the Rays to a 2-1 win over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

The win snapped Tampa Bay’s three-game losing streak and was just its second victory in the past nine road games.

Jonny Gomes had an RBI single for the Red Sox, who had won three of their past four.

Red Sox third base coach Brian Butterfield was ejected by first base umpire Toby Basner for slamming his helmet to the ground in the seventh inning after a challenge on an out at the plate on what would have been the tying run.

Brandon Gomes (2-1), the first of four relievers, got four outs for the win. Grant Balfour recorded the final three for his fifth save, getting David Ortiz to ground out with a runner on second for the final out.
