Gameday live: Rays vs. Red Sox



4:10: Rays win 6-4 as Justin Ruggiano homers after Fernando Perez tripled to start the ninth.

4:02: Still tied 4-4 going to bottom of the ninth.

3:20: The Red Sox just tied it 4-4 with a single by Brett Harper off Joe Bateman in the seventh.

2:39: Kelly Shoppach puts the Rays up 4-3 with a two-run blast to left following Upton's single up the middle.

2:35: Rays get a long homer by Ben Zobrist off Adam Mills to open the home fourth, the first of the spring by a Ray other than Sean Rodriguez.

2:32: Wade Davis didn't do much to help his cause either, failing to finish his second inning and also walking three. Sox lead 3-1 going to bottom of fourth.

2:22: The Rays got one run back on a well-executed sequence in the third after Gape Kapler reached on a fielder's choice after Kelly Shoppach reached on an error. Jason Bartlett singled to right and Kapler went first to third, then scored on Carl Crawford's single.

1:53: Davis comes in to work the third with the Rays trailing 2-0.

1:39: Sonnanstine is done after that one inning, with Randy Choate now in. Assuming Wade Davis will work the third.

1:30: Sonnanstine threw 29 pitches in that inning.

Sonnanstine ended up allowing only two runs, but only because Boston's sixth hitter, Lars Anderson, hit a bullet right at 2B Ben Zobrist, who snagged it and doubled Josh Reddick off first. Sonnanstine went to three balls on five of the six batters he faced.

Sonnanstine allowed an RBI single, and went to a three-ball count on the fifth hitter (Josh Reddick) before getting a ground ball for his first out, though another run scored.

1:16: So much for Andy Sonnanstine's fresh start - he's walked the first three Red Sox.

1:02: The Rays and Red Sox are about to get started here with a very large crowd and lots of sunshine.
