It was the Rays’ fourth straight victory and made them 4-0 at Fenway Park this season.
Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a solo homer for Boston, which has dropped the first two of a four-game series.
For the second straight game, a Rays starter kept the Red Sox hitters very quiet.

The Rays jumped ahead 4-0 in the second against Josh Smith (0-2).
