    Red Sox, Rays split:They’re hurting, not hitting

    BOSTON — All things considered, the Boston Red Sox had to consider themselves fortunate to split Tuesday’s day-night doubleheader with the Tampa Bay Rays.

    The Red Sox, playing both games without the injured David Ortiz and Marco Scutaro, and resting a banged-up and sore Kevin Youkilis in the second game, collected only six hits on the day.

    With three hits in each game, they won the first 3-1 and fell 6-2 in the second.

    “We didn’t get a lot of hits today. Fortunately we ended up getting a win in the first game, but they pitched us tough all day and the guy (today) will be real tough, too,” Boston Manager Terry Francona said, looking ahead at facing David Price in the series finale.
