Rays starter Jake Odorizzi leaves with tight left hamstring

"Frustrating loss", manager Kevin Cash said.

"My pitch was just to throw a sinker inside and I didn't miss", Nicasio said.

One of the best parts of attending Monday's game is spilling out onto Kenmore Square afterward, where you're met by thousands of runners on Mile 25 of the course.

Porcello (1-1) gave up eight runs in 4 1/3 innings, halting the majors' longest active streak of pitching at least six innings at 20 games.

Other players planned on making sure they followed the usual things they do to try avoiding germs.

Rays starter Chris Archer (2-0) continued his solid April.

My seats were not in the bleachers as I had been told, but rather the first base grandstand high in the lower deck, meaning it was shady, as you can tell, and therefore cold.

Wright (1-1) allowed one earned run and nine hits before being pulled after a leadoff single in the seventh inning.

But the skinny left-hander got just enough help Saturday to get his first victory in a Red Sox uniform. They arrived just before 1 a.m. and were heading to Chicago for a weekend series against the Cubs. Ramirez limped back to second base after the play - a Mitch Moreland two-RBI single - and had to leave the game after a brief discussion with manager John Farrell and a Red Sox trainer.

This was the make up game for an earlier rain out and gave the Sox a roundabout three game sweep of the Bucs.

"I know for a fact he thrives on the DH spot, that's probably his preference overall", Farrell said.

This was Sale's 21st 12-strikeout game since the 2012 season - first among all pitchers over that span. Clayton Kershaw has the next most with 13.

"Sale was very very hard, but I liked a lot of the at-bats", said Rays manager Kevin Cash, who also liked the work of his bullpen under hard circumstances. "He's fine. We anticipate this will be a short stay".

Right-hander Erasmo Ramirez replaced Odorizzi and gave up a home run on his first pitch to Moreland. "I'll be in there tomorrow".

Two bombs went off near the finish line a little less than an hour after the Red Sox had beat the Rays, also on Jackie Robinson Day.

Their last Patriots Day meeting between the teams came on the day of the infamous Boston Marathon bombing, which claimed the lives of three spectators and two law enforcement officials. It also included a patch that read "Boston Strong".

"I think it comes back to not getting any strikeouts", he said of his outing.

Entering Friday night's start, Chris Archer had never won at Fenway Park, going 0-3 with a 7.30 ERA (24.2-IP/20-ER) in five starts.

Wright also was lit up in his only other start against the Rays, giving up four runs on seven hits and three walks with three strikeouts in four innings last August 31. Lynn (1-1) allowed 3 hits and struck out 5 while walking 1.
