Rays Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Tampa Bay Rallies But Comes Up Short In 6-4 Loss

Although they were able to fight back from an early 4-0 deficit, but were not able to avoid a third straight defeat at the hands of the Boston Red Sox, losing 6-4.

After cutting the deficit to 4-3 with clutch hitting in the fifth, the Rays tied the game at four when Luke Scott hit a home run off of Felix Doubront.

The deadlock wouldn't last long as in the bottom half of the sixth, David Ortiz put the Sox up 5-4 with an RBI double. The Red Sox added an insurance run when Mike Aviles hit his first home run of the season.

Matt Moore had a rough start on the mound for the Rays, allowing all six runs in 6.1 innings on eight hits and four walks.

The Rays return to action tomorrow morning in Boston for the annual Patriot Day game. First pitch is scheduled for 11:05 a.m.
