ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - David Price won his sixth start in a row, Evan Longoria hit a three-run double and the Tampa Bay Rays earned their eighth straight victory, beating the Boston Red Sox 6-4 on Friday night.
Price (11-7) struck out 10 over eight innings. He tied the team record shared by Matt Moore and Scott Kazmir for victories in consecutive starts.
This was Price's first game against Boston since he hit David Ortiz with a fastball on May 30, setting off a verbal skirmish between the stars. There was no trouble between them this time.
Ben Zobrist got his fourth hit, an RBI double that made it 3-all in the Rays seventh. Later in the inning, Longoria delivered his go-ahead hit off Junichi Tazawa (1-2).
Jake McGee gave up a run in the ninth and got his 10th save.
Desmond Jennings homered off Boston starter Jon Lester.
