In two losses on Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Rays scored just two runs. On Wednesday, they tripled that total in one game, beating Boston, 6-2. Ryan Dempster was the focus of their offensive ire, as they pounded out 15 hits. Even newly minted Wil Myers doubled in two runs, while the Red Sox could only muster 7 hits against 6 Tampa pitchers. On top of everything, Jose Iglesias' hitting streak ended at 18 games.
