Yunel Escobar backed up a complete game win over the Boston Red Sox by Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price with a brilliant behind that back flip to start a double play in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Price (5-5) needed only 97 pitches for his seventh career complete game. He struck out four and didn’t walk a batter. Since returning from a 47-day stint on the disabled list because of a triceps strain, Price is 4-1 with a 1.76 ERA in five starts.
Wil Myers drove in two runs in the third and James Loney and Jose Molina each had RBI singles off Matt Thornton to push the Rays’ lead to 5-1 in the eighth.
Felix Doubront (7-4) gave up three runs and six hit for Bsoton. Mike Napoli homered for Boston, which lost for the fifth time in eight games.
