We did a pretty good job of it up until the Friday before Texas, and thats when the Wall Street Journal (article) came out, and that stirred up the coaches.

They were disputing claims by school regents that Briles knew of an alleged gang rape.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The latest memorable night for David Ortiz ended badly for the Boston Red Sox.Ortiz became the oldest player ever to hit 30 homers in a season, but the Tampa Bay Rays came back from a three-run deficit to beat Boston 4-3 in 11 innings on Wednesday night and prevent the Red Sox from taking sole possession of first place in the American League East.Its hard to lose a game like that at this time, Ortiz said. You expect to win that kind of game, especially the stage that we are in now. Luke Maile doubled with two out in the 11th and scored from second base after Red Sox pitcher Heath Hembree (4-1) dropped a throw to first on Kevin Kiermaiers grounder. Hembrees throw to the plate beat Maile, but catcher Sandy Leon dropped the ball as Maile slid across with the winning run.Thats kind of a routine 3-to-1 play, Boston manager John Farrell said. Unfortunately, it comes at a time where youve got two outs and the guy is on the move, and it ends up being the difference in this one.Brad Boxberger (2-0) got the win after one inning of relief.Its fun anytime you can walk off in front of your fans and have a celebration out there on the field. We dont get to do that very much, Kiermaier said. Its a win.

I can put a little bit of weight [on it], not trying to push it or overdo it, Benintendi said. Come back tomorrow and see how it feels. It was bad baserunning. It shouldnt happen.The 40-year-old Ortiz hit the first pitch he saw from starter Matt Andriese in the first inning for a two-run homer. Ortiz is the only player with 30 homers and 100 RBIs in each of the past four seasons, and he is the first Red Sox player to drive in 100 runs 10 times.We need that, we need offense, Ortiz said.

LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (left hamstring) will have a bullpen session on Thursday, which will help determine where he will be inserted into the rotation. Also to be determined is the role of RHP Clay Buchholz, who was moved out of the bullpen on Aug. 13 and made three solid starts. Once we get through [Thursday], well have more clarity, Farrell said.SIX-MAN ROTATION LIKELY FOR RAYSWith Alex Cobb and/or Chase Whitley coming back from injuries and rookie Blake Snell facing limits on his innings, the Rays are considering a six-man rotation down the stretch, and even that would mean removing a current starter from the mix.I think thats probably a good option, Rays manager Kevin Cash said.
