Rays - 100 110 100 - 4 7 0 Red Sox - 000 000 000 - 0 3 1Price (8-3-0-3-6, 116) shut down the Sox, who managed only three hits for the third consecutive game.
Boston's best scoring chance came when Jacoby Ellsbury tripled to start the sixth inning. Dustin Pedroia was called out on a borderline-to-outside pitch for the first out. Adrian Gonzalez grounded sharply back to Price and Ellsbury was caught off the bag (roughly halfway down the line, for some unknown reason) and tagged out in a rundown.
The Red Sox tied a team record for most consecutive games with three or fewer hits (in the Play Index Era, 1919-2011). The other streaks were May 15-17, 1952 (7 hits), September 11-13, 1971 (9 hits), and September 2-4, 1974 (8 hits).
