Trevor Story had two hits, including his 13th home run of the year, and three Red Sox pitchers held the Rays to a pair of singles as Boston blanked Tampa Bay 4-0 Monday afternoon at Fenway Park.

Kutter Crawford (pictured) went 5.1 innings for the win, evening his record at 2-2. Recalled from Triple-A Worcester for the game, he struck out eight and walked just one.
The Rays offense had been hot coming into the series, scoring 24 runs in their last three games, all wins against the Blue Jays.
Story put the Red Sox up 1-0 in the bottom of the fourth and Rafael Devers made it 2-0 with an RBI infield single (looked more like an error but we won't complain). Boston added two more in the bottom of the eighth to complete the scoring.
The Red Sox were without Xander Bogaerts in the lineup after suffering a laceration on his left thigh. He is still listed as day-to-day.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
