Red Sox Beat Rays 7-4 to Extend Lead in MLB Postseason Series

Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and scored three runs as the host Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-4 to take a two-games-to-none lead in their best-of-five American League division series.

The Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the first inning off a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice fly and a David Ortiz home run and never trailed at Fenway Park. Pedroia drove in three runs and Ortiz added a second home run in the eighth inning as the Red Sox combined for 11 hits.

Boston has scored 19 runs in two games so far in the ALDS series. The Rays will face elimination when they host Game 3 of the series on Oct. 7 in St. Petersburg.

Rays starting pitcher David Price allowed nine hits and seven earned runs before being removed with no outs following Ortiz’s second home run. James Loney, Desmond Jennings and Yunel Escobar each had two hits for the Rays.

The Oakland Athletics host the Detroit Tigers today in Game 2 of the other ALDS. Rookie Sonny Gray is scheduled to start for the Athletics against Detroit’s Justin Verlander. The Tigers lead the series 1-0.
