Talk about a deep hole.
Here the Tampa Bay Rays were, trailing 5-1 with ace pitcher David Price on the mound.
Yet, the Rays dug themselves out, scoring six times in the fourth and three more in the top of the ninth to take a 12-8 win over the Boston Red Sox to take their series. Both teams are now 7-8 on the season.
Erasmo Ramirez of the Rays went to 4-0 with the win in relief, giving him more than half of the team’s victories. He entered the game in the seventh and struck out Mookie Betts with the bases loaded.
Evan Longoria and Curt Casali each homered for the Rays. Logan Fosythe had three hits, while Guyer, Longoria, Steven Souza and Casali had two.
Price went only 3 2/3 innings and allowed eight earned runs on eight hits.
The Rays now travel to New York, where Matt Moore will face the Yankees’ C.C. Sabathia in the first of a three-game series.
