FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) _ In his longest outing of the spring, Tampa Bay ace David Price pitched into the seventh inning to help the Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 7-4 on Tuesday night.

Dan Johnson hit his fourth homer, a two-run shot, and former Red Sox star Manny Ramirez scored a run in his first return to City of Palms Park since 2008.

John Lackey took the loss for Boston, giving up five runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings. He walked three and struck out four while throwing 96 pitches, 57 strikes.

Price went 6 1-3 innings, allowing one run and five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. He threw 103 pitches, 61 for strikes.

The 2010 AL Cy Young Award runner-up will get one more Grapefruit League start, expected to be a short tuneup before the April 1 season opener against Baltimore.
