Pierzynski lifts Red Sox over Rays 3-2 in 10

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - A.J. Pierzynski hit an RBI triple in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Boston Red Sox -- on their fourth manager of the night following a string of ejections -- beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 Friday in the latest testy game between the teams on a wild evening at Fenway Park.

Jonny Gomes fittingly reached base by being hit by a pitch, a common theme that led to one bench-clearing scrum and nearly as many ejections as runs scored.

Juan Carlos Oviedo (1-2) plunked Gomes with one out in the 10th and Pierzynski followed with a drive to the triangle in right-center, where the ball landed between Wil Myers and Desmond Jennings.

The Red Sox rushed out of the dugout -- for once not to possibly fight their AL East rivals -- and celebrated their fifth straight win following a 10-game skid.
