ALDS: Rays Fall Hard To The Sox 12-2 In Game 1

BOSTON (AP) — One ball fell between two outfielders. Another took a bad hop off the Green Monster standings. One batter reached safely on a dropped third strike and another when the pitcher was slow to cover first.

By the time it was over, the Boston Red Sox had scored five runs in the fourth inning, taking advantage of Tampa Bay’s bad luck and bad defense to beat the Rays 12-2 on Friday in Game 1 of the AL division series.

Every Boston starter got a hit and scored a run. The Red Sox tweeted that it was the first time a team had done that in the postseason since 1936 — Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and the Yankees did it in the World Series.
