Odorizzi stellar, Rays beat Red Sox 7-0

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Jake Odorizzi rebounded from his worst start with a gem.

Ordorizzi and two pitchers combined on a one-hitter as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 7-0 on Saturday night.

Coming off a start Monday night in which he gave up a career-high eight runs over four innings in a 9-1 loss at Baltimore, Odorizzi (10-11) allowed a fourth-inning single to Will Middlebrooks, three walks and struck out seven over seven innings.

''He had a really good look about him,'' Rays manager Joe Maddon said. ''Everything was working.''

Jeff Beliveau and Kirby Yates completed the one-hitter. Tampa Bay set a single-season team record with its 18th shutout this year.

Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia was removed from the game in the second inning due to concussion-like symptoms. Pedroia was struck in the head by the arm of Logan Forsythe as the Rays infielder was sliding head-first into second while advancing on a flyball.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Pedroia was dizzy after the play, but improved as the game went on.

''He caught him with a good elbow to the left side of the head,'' Farrell said. ''We'll take every precaution necessary with Dustin.''

Forsythe said the contact was unintentional.

''The only move that I made was to try to swim-move the tag to get out of the way,'' Forsythe said.

James Loney had an RBI double during a three-run second off Allen Webster (3-3) that put the Rays ahead 3-0. Ben Zobrist made it 4-0 on his second run-scoring grounder of the game in the fourth.

Tampa Bay went up 7-0 with a three-run fifth. Two runs scored when catcher David Ross was charged with an error for an off-target throw to first on Brandon Guyer's bunt single.

Webster gave up six runs and five hits over four-plus innings.

The Red Sox loaded the bases with two outs in the seventh when Odorizzi walked three consecutive batters, but the right-hander worked out of trouble by getting a pop fly from Xander Bogaerts.

The long seventh cost Odorizzi any chance for his first career complete game.

''Frustrating,'' he said.

The start of the game was delayed 12 minutes after a series of stadium lights at Tropicana Field went out during a thunderstorm just before the scheduled first pitch. The Rays said the problem was caused by lightning striking a nearby electrical substation.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Red Sox: Bogaerts was activated from the seven-day concussion list. He missed six games after being hit in the head by a pitch from Seattle's Felix Hernandez August 22.

Rays: CF Desmond Jennings was out of the lineup for the second straight game due to a sore left knee. He is not expected to start Sunday.

MINOR MATTERS

Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo, signed to a seven-year, $72.5 million contract a week ago, is scheduled to make his pro debut for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox in Game 2 of the GCL championship series Sunday. The Red Sox can win the league title with a win over the GCL Yankees.

MYERS MISERY

Rays OF Wil Myers was hitless in five at_bats and is just 6 for 42 since returning from a broken right wrist. He has struck out 16 times over the stretch.

UP NEXT

Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz (5-8) and Rays RHP Alex Cobb (9-6) are the scheduled starters Sunday. Cobb is 7-0 with a 2.14 ERA over his last 11 starts.
