 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -Tim Wakefield continued his dominance over Tampa Bay, allowing four hits over seven innings as the Boston Red Sox blanked the Devil Rays 6-0 on Monday night.
Wakefield improved to 19-2 - including a 9-0 mark at Tropicana Field - all-time against the Devil Rays. It's the most wins by any Tampa Bay opponent. Wakefield (15-10) struck out five and walked one, and moved into a tie for the major league lead in wins this season.
The Devil Rays lost for the sixth time in eight games and fell to 47-77, two games worse than they were at this time last year.
Mike Lowell had a homer and drove in three runs, and Manny Ramirez had two RBIs for the AL East-leading Red Sox, who are 11-8 in August. Ramirez has 39 RBIs in 38 games since the All-Star break.
Lowell put the Red Sox up 2-0 on a two-run double in the first. His solo homer off Scott Kazmir (9-8) extended the Boston lead to 6-0 in the fifth. The blast ended Kazmir's stretch of not allowing a homer in nine straight starts.
Athletics 6, Blue Jays 4
