Things get tighter as Rays rout Sox

The Red Sox lead in the Wild Card race was cut to three games after the Rays claimed a decisive 9-2 win over the Sox Thursday night at Fenway Park. It was the sixth straight loss for the Red Sox against Tampa Bay, who has out-scored Terry Francona's team 42-15 during that stretch.

Taking the loss for the Red Sox was Kyle Weiland, who allowed four runs over three innings, with all the damage coming in a four-run third inning for the Rays. The visitors first run came with two outs in the third when Sox shortstop Marco Scutaro was distracted by a broken bat, allowing B.J. Upton's grounder to get through to left field for an RBI single. Evan Longoria would immediately follow with a three-run home run into the Red Sox bullpen.

The lone Red Sox run came in the home half of the third when Jarrod Saltalamacchia scored on an Adrian Gonzalez ground out to first base.

Buchholz to have Saturday bullpen session
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said prior to Thrusday night's game against the Rays that rehabbing pitcher Clay Buchholz will throw a full bullpen session on Saturday. 

Buchholz threw 15 pitches off the front of the bullpen mound and an additional 15 from the rubber on Thursday. The 27-year-old last pitched on June 16 and has been out with a stress fracture in his lower back. He is 6-3 this season with a 3.48 earned run average in 14 starts.

Francona also noted that left-hander Erik Bedard has yet to progress past playing light catch and is not close to a return. He is dealing with a strained lat muscle.
