It's a good thing the Orioles somehow managed to hold on to beat the Yankees.

The Red Sox offense took Sunday off, managing just three hits in a 3-2 loss to the Rays in Tampa on Sunday afternoon.

Jackie Bradley Jr. (pictured) had two hits including his 17th home run of the year in the top of the sixth inning which briefly tied the game at 2-2.

The only other hit was a single by Andrew Benintendi in the top of the ninth.

Rays starter Jake Odorizzi allowed one hit - the home run by JBJ - in earning his ninth win of the year. He struck out six and walked a pair over six innings.

Eduardo Rodriguez saw his record fall to 5-6. He allowed all three Rays runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven.

A bright spot for the Red Sox was two shutout innings by David Price. No one reached base and he struck out two.

The loss by the Yankees to Baltimore kept the Red Sox lead at three games in the American League East.
