Drew Smyly of the Tampa Bay Rays had plenty to be smiling about on Tuesday night.
Smyly pitched eight innings of one-hit baseball, shutting down the Boston Red Sox in a 3-0 win in 10 innings.
Smyly had trouble in the third, giving up two walks and his only single to Jackie Bradley Jr. But the Rays got out of it with a force-out to home and a double play, keeping the shutout going.
The Rays had only three hits themselves through the first nine innings, but they broke through in the 10th. Kevin Kiermaier led off with a home run, and Desmond Jennings doubled in two insurance runs later.
Erasmo Ramirez pitched the ninth to get his third win of the year. Alex Colome pitched the 10th for the save.
Smyly retired the last 17 batters he faced. In all, the Rays retired the last 23.
But the Rays have scored two runs or less in his 15 of his 22 starts as a Ray. In half of those, they’ve scored one or fewer.
