Lester, Red Sox end Rays' winning streak
The left-hander pitched effectively into the seventh inning and Boston's bullpen did the rest, carrying the Red Sox to a bounce-back 6-2 win over the hard-charging Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.
Evan Longoria and Wil Myers hit solo homers for the Rays, who lost for just the third time in 21 games and had a six-game winning streak snapped.
Longoria's homer, a drive into the seats in left-center above the Green Monster, cut the Red Sox's lead to 3-2 in the sixth, but Boston's bullpen shut the door.
The Red Sox put it away with three runs in the eighth — two coming on Iglesias' single and the other on Stephen Drew's RBI single.
