For the second time in as many nights, the Rays lost a game in extra innings.

This time, it was at the hands of Steve Geltz.

The Boston Red Sox got to Geltz for a run in the first time for 10 appearances. This time, the Rays will be kicking themselves over a squandered opportunity in the bottom of the ninth.

The Red Sox combined for three hits and the winning run off Geltz Friday night. Mookie Betts doubled and Brock Holt singled to knock in the winning run. Boston had entered the game with the worst record in the American League.

The Rays fell behind 3-1, but forced extra innings when David DeJesus hit a sacrifice fly to score Joey Butler and Evan Longoria scored on a wild pitch.

Tampa Bay had a chance to score in the bottom of the ninth when Asdrubal Cabrera doubled and Jake Elmore was walked intentionally. Catcher Curt Casali struck out, however, after failing to get a sacrifice bunt down. Butler lined out to right to end the inning.

For the Rays, Logan Forsythe had three hits.

It was the second straight extra inning loss for Tampa Bay.

In today's game at 4:10 at Tropicana, the Rays' Mike Andriese will oppose Wade Miley.
