Red Sox 4, Rays 0, Game 2



Tampa Bay's AL East title defense officially ends with its 11th straight loss, the longest skid in the majors this season. Jon Lester and Billy Wagner combine on a four-hitter for Boston, which sweeps the doubleheader and the three-game series. The Rays waste yet another quality start -- this one by James Shields, snapping his string of poor performances at Fenway Park -- and finish the season series with the Red Sox 9-9 after winning eight of the first 12 matchups.
