Red Sox 3, Rays 4, End 8: Three Outs To Go For Boston

The Red Sox are down to just three outs to score one run against the Rays.

Again, the Sox have had their opportunities, but have made relatively little of them. Facing off against rookie Matt Moore, the Sox drew back-to-back walks with one out in the sixth, but received only a ground out and pop out from Josh Reddick and Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

The seventh inning would prove more productive, but only by a small margin. With the first two reaching this time, the Sox called on Marco Scutaro to bunt. While the attempt would result in an out at second, it got the job done of moving a runner to third. Said runner would score on a Jacoby Ellsbury groundout, but with Dustin Pedroia striking out behind him the results were less than they perhaps could have been.
