BOSTON (AP) — Ryan Yarbrough held Boston to an unearned run into the eighth inning, Travis d’Arnaud hit a three-run homer and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Red Sox 9-2 in the opener of day-night doubleheader Saturday.
It was the Rays’ fourth straight victory and made them 4-0 at Fenway Park this season.
Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a solo homer for Boston, which has dropped the first two of a four-game series.
For the second straight game, a Rays starter kept the Red Sox hitters very quiet.
