Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi on DL with strained hamstring

Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi on DL with strained hamstring

Wright (1-1) served up four homers and eight runs in just 1 1/3 innings last Wednesday against Baltimore.

"The one thing coming out of spring training that he showed us was that in RBI situations he didn't panic, he used the whole field, he had a pretty good plan at the plate, he wasn't overaggressive, and that was the case again today on a cutter from Cedeno that stayed up", said Red Sox manager John Farrell.

The Red Sox also paused to mark four years since the Boston Marathon bombing.

Mookie Betts had four hits and an RBI on his bobblehead night, while Xander Bogaerts delivered three hits and an RBI, Hanley Ramirez drove in two runs and Andrew Benintendi one for the Red Sox (5-5).

Wakefield, who now works with NESN, won 186 games with the Red Sox in 1995-2011.

Sale struck out 12 batters, including five in a row during a stretch in which he retired the final 10 batters he faced.

Wright's first stint in the majors wasn't a long one.

RAYS KEY TRENDS: The Rays have lost five of their last six games overall and are just 1-5 in their last six divisional games.

"Initially, I think we were going to go with a day off", said Kimbrel, who recorded three saves in as many days for the first time since July 24-26, 2015, for the San Diego Padres. With all the hype surrounding the young outfielder, Benintendi has remained poised, hitting a home run on opening day and having two three-hit performances thus far.

Pablo Sandoval gets the day off after clubbing a two-run home run in Sunday's 7-5 win over the Rays.

Wright's ERA is at 13.50, which is the second-highest among Major League Baseball pitchers with two or more starts.

With his first three starts in 1998, Martinez set the bar ridiculously high for every new Red Sox ace who has followed. RHP Michael Fulmer (1-0, 2.25) is scheduled for the Tigers.

"It started to loosen up once he got off the field", Farrell said. "Hopefully I can keep it going".

Sale walked Kevin Kiermaier to begin the third inning, and Steven Souza hits a single following a Tim Beckham strikeout.

Ramirez suffered the injury rounding second base on Mitch Moreland's go-ahead single in the seventh inning. "He'll be on the DL", Cash said. The Sox loaded the bases on two singles and a walk against Tommy Hunter (0-1).

"Generally when you lose a guy like that, those games can spiral out of control", Cash said. It's just about patching it together a little longer and a little better until those options get back to 100 percent.

Peterson, selected from Triple-A Durham to replace the injured Mallex Smith, and Souza also singled home runs while Miller had three hits and Morrison also had a double in the rout.

First pitch of the game was at 11 a.m., coinciding with the Boston Marathon.

In his latest gem, Sale dominated the Tampa Bay Rays for seven innings Saturday at Fenway Park. Joe Kelly and Matt Barnes have stepped up and solidified two wins each for the Boston Red Sox as well, without giving up losses.
