By Alabama News Network

Pinch-hitter Cole Figueroa hit an RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead the Tampa Bay Rays past the Boston Red Sox 1-0 on Friday night.

Desmond Jennings drew a one-out walk in the ninth off Andrew Miller (1-3). Burke Badenhop entered and, after Jennings stole second, Figueroa drove in the winning run on a drive to right- center.
Juan Carlos Oviedo (1-0), the third Tampa Bay reliever, pitched the ninth and got the win.
John Lackey gave up five hits, including three by Evan Longoria, in seven-plus shutout innings for the Red Sox, who have lost eight in a row. Boston has scored just 16 runs during its longest skid since dropping the final eight games of the 2012 season.
Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer struck out 11, walked four and scattered four hits over six scoreless innings.
