ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ Cody Ross homered and drove in four
runs, Felix Doubront won his third consecutive start and the Boston
Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Thursday night.

Ross extended Boston’s lead to 5-2 on a two-run single off
reliever Wade Davis with two outs in the eighth.

Doubront (4-1) allowed two runs and six hits over 5 2-3 innings.
The left-hander was hit on the ear by a ball during batting
practice Tuesday and cleared one day later to make his scheduled
start.

Matt Moore (1-4) gave up three runs and five hits in six innings
for Tampa Bay, which had its four-game winning streak snapped.

Alfredo Aceves, the fifth Boston reliever, got four outs for his
eighth save. He allowed B.J Upton’s RBI single with two outs in the
eighth.
