Buchholz outduels Price, Red Sox beat Rays
Tampa Bay got a strong, gutsy outing from starter David Price, who struck out nine over eight innings on 127 pitches, a career high and the most by a Rays pitcher since Victor Zambrano threw 128 on July 8, 2004.
But once again, the Rays couldn't muster any offense to support their left-handed ace.
Since beginning this 4-12 skid on Aug. 25, Tampa Bay has scored only 41 runs (2.56 per game).
The Red Sox bullpen did its job when Buchholz left after five innings and 74 pitches. Lefty reliever Craig Breslow tossed two hitless innings, righty Junichi Tazawa recorded two outs in the eighth and closer Koji Uehara notched a four-out save, his 19th save, to secure Boston's 88th victory.
