Payback: Sox slug 5 homers, rout Rays

Marco Scutaro homered twice and Josh Reddick had a career-high three hits as the Red Sox overcame an early 4-0 hole to beat the Rays, 11-5, at Fenway Park.

 

Starter Tim Wakefield [4-10] allowed six hits and five runs - four earned - over five innings to earn his first win since July 2. He snapped a personal three-game losing streak and, at 44 years, 37 days, passed Dennis Eckersley as the oldest pitcher in team history to record a win.

 

The Red Sox tagged Rays starter Matt Garza [14-8] for four of their five homers on the night. Adrian Beltre, David Ortiz and Victor Martinez also went deep for the Red Sox, who finished their homestand against the White Sox and Rays with a 2-4 record. They have Thursday off before heading to Oakland and Seattle on a six-game road trip, beginning Friday night in Oakland.

Wednesday Patriots report: No Moss

FOXBORO -- In keeping with last year's tradition of taking Wednesday's off during the regular season, Randy Moss was not spotted during the open portion of Wednesday practice on the lower practice field at Gillette Stadium.

 

Additionally, Terrence Wheatley, Nick Kaczur and Quinn Ojinnaka were not spotted at practice either. Meanwhile, Julian Edelman and Laurence Maroney were on the sidelines in sweats. Ojinnaka is not eligible to practice this week as he is serving a one-game league-mandated suspension for a domestic issue involving his wife in May 2009.

 

The team practice in full pads and helmets in the hot and humid conditions. The team is getting ready for its season opener Sunday at home against Cincinnati.
