Bats nap behind Wake

Rays 3, Red Sox 1
Jacoby Ellsbury legs out a single before being hit by a throw that led to a two-base error. (AP)
Tim Wakefield stifled the Rays once again, but both of his wild pitches led to runs, and the Red Sox were unable to pick up the knuckleballer. Boston was held to six hits -- two apiece by Jacoby Ellsbury and Brandon Moss -- with Ellsbury scoring the lone run on a J.D. Drew sacrifice fly.
