Red Sox starter Felix Doubront held the Tampa Bay Rays to just three runs over 6.2 innings, but David Price dominated Boston over nine innings as Boston fell 5-1 to Tampa at Fenway Park.

The Rays scored three runs in the top of the third inning on a two-rbi single by rookie phenom Wil Myers and a sacrifice fly by Ben Zobrist to take an early 3-0 lead. They tacked on two insurance runs in the eighth.

Price (pictured) scattered five hits and didn't walk a batter while striking out four. The lone Red Sox run came on a solo home run by Mike Napoli in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Doubront allowed six hits and walked two while striking out five. His record dropped to 7-4. Since coming back from the disabled list, Price is 4-1 with an earned run average around 1.90.

Shane Victorino and Napoli each had two hits for Boston.
