PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – Carlos Pena, Evan Longoria and Luke Scott homered for the Tampa Bay Rays, but four errors and a shaky relief outing from Wade Davis led to a 7-7 tie Saturday against the Boston Red Sox.

The game was called after nine innings.

Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine left his regulars in Fort Myers, opting to bring minor leaguers and backups.

Rays Manager Joe Maddon used a handful of relievers because the scheduled starter, Jeff Niemann, was a late scratch. Niemann, who beat out Davis for the fifth spot in Tampa Bay’s rotation, had a blister on his right middle finger but isn’t expected to miss his first regular-season start.

Davis labored through three innings, giving up five runs on five hits and a walk.
