Shields, Rays Defeat Red Sox 1-0 on Patriots’ Day at Fenway Park

April 16 (Bloomberg) -- James Shields struck out five batters in 8 1/3 innings as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 1-0 this afternoon on the Patriots’ Day holiday at Fenway Park.

Shields allowed four hits and two walks before leaving with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Rays scored the game’s only run in the top of the seventh inning when Red Sox pitcher Daniel Bard, making his second career start, walked Evan Longoria with the bases loaded.

Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings had a team-high two hits and a stolen base, and Fernando Rodney got the final two outs in the win, Tampa’s first in its last five games. Cody Ross led the Red Sox with two hits before striking out looking with two men on base to end the game.

The Red Sox are 67-50 on Patriots’ Day, which coincides each year with the running of the Boston Marathon, won earlier today by Wesley Korir and Sharon Cherop of Kenya. The holiday commemorates the Battles of Lexington and Concord from the Revolutionary War.

Boston opened the season 1-5 and then won three games, outscoring the Rays by a combined 31-11. The loss moves the Red Sox to 4-6, alone in last place in the American League East division.
