The Red Sox got another win behind strong pitching.
Daniel Bard started the game and went three innings of shutout ball. Bard only allowed two hits and struck out one, although he did issue two walks.
Alfredo Aceves came in for relief duty and looked to be in midseason form. The ex-Yankee also threw three scoreless frames while surrendering two hits and punching out a pair.
At the plate, Boston touched up Tampa Bay pitching for nine hits, all from different players. Kevin Youkilis and Jarrod Saltalamacchia picked up one RBI each en route to the victory.
Darnell McDonald scored a run and also had a hit to continue his nice Spring, leaving him with a .455 average so far.
The Red Sox can also feel good that they got to a legitimate big league pitcher and not some camp fodder. Wade Davis was knocked around a tad, giving up four runs (two earned) in just 2 2/3 innings.
