Boston splits series with Rays

The Red Sox won tonite 5-3, to split the quicky series with the Rays.

Felix Doubront gave up 2 runs, only one of them earned in 5 2/3 innings to get the win.  Last year's Ray's phenom Matt Moore gave up two solo homers -- one to Cody Ross and one to light hitting Marlon Byrd to get the loss and see his record fall to 1-5.

The win salves the wounds of last night's 2-1 loss where both Rays runs came on fluky bad plays -- a stumble balk by Clay Buccholz and another awkward easy fly ball lost in the lights by Cody Ross.

The series should have been a sweep for the guys, but I'll take the split against the division leading Rays for the moment.  It's off to some interleague play now as the 8 game road trip rumbles on.
