ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury and Josh Reddick homered and the Boston Red Sox rallied from an early three-run deficit against All-Star James Shields to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 9-5 on Saturday.
John Lackey (7-8) struck out seven while allowing four runs and 10 hits over 5 2-3 innings for the AL East leaders, who retained a 1 1-2-game lead over the New York Yankees and dropped the third-place Rays a season-high six games off the pace in the division.
Reddick's two-run homer got Boston rolling after the Rays staked Shields (8-8) to a 3-0 lead in the first inning. Ellsbury hit a solo shot in the fourth, while Pedroia homered for the third consecutive game when he connected off Juan Cruz in the seventh.
