ST. Johan Mojica Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays are on quite a roll. Price won his sixth start in a row, Evan Longoria hit a three-run double, and the Rays earned their eighth straight victory by beating the Boston Red Sox 6-4 on Friday night. "A little bit of the swagger is back," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. The Red Sox lost their fourth consecutive game. Price (11-7) struck out 10 over eight innings. He tied the team record shared by Matt Moore and Scott Kazmir for victories in consecutive starts. "Wonderful once again," Maddon said. This was Prices first game against Boston since he hit David Ortiz with a fastball on May 30, setting off a verbal skirmish between the stars. There was no trouble between them this time as Ortiz returned to the lineup one day after leaving a game because of back spasms. "Its feeling better," Ortiz said. "After what we did last night and today when I got up and took some medication, it felt much better." Ortiz had words with plate umpire Bill Miller during an early strikeout, then hit an RBI single in a two-run sixth for a 3-2 Red Sox lead. "It definitely felt good," Price of striking out Ortiz. "Hes a tough out always." Price has pitched at least eight innings in eight of his last nine starts. Ben Zobrist got his fourth hit, an RBI single that made it 3-all in the seventh. Later in the inning, Longoria delivered his go-ahead hit off Junichi Tazawa (1-2). "Weve won some games and weve done some things that kind of remind us of what were capable of, but by no means are we where we want to be," Longoria said. "Weve got a lot of work to do." Tampa Bay improved to three games under .500 for the first time since May 6. Jake McGee gave up a run in the ninth but got his 10th save. Desmond Jennings hit a two-run homer in the fifth off Boston starter Jon Lester for a 2-1 lead. Lester gave up two runs and six hits in six innings. He had allowed just one earned run over 31 innings in his previous four starts. "We made David work pretty hard, but he was able to get a lot more early-out counts than I was, and thats why he was able to go a couple more innings," Lester said. The crowd greeted Ortiz with sustained booing before his first at-bat in the first. The fans then gave Price a partial standing ovation after Ortiz took a called third strike. "Our fans were pretty hot," Maddon said. "They came out with a little attitude. We dug it." Shane Victorino connected in the second for the 20th home run allowed this season by Price. Victorino also singled home Ortiz in the sixth. NOTES: Zobrist had infield singles in each of his first three at-bats. ... Rays OF Wil Myers (broken right wrist) hopes to take batting practice in four or five days. He could return in mid-August. ... Tampa Bay reliever Joel Peralta (illness) could come off the DL early next week. He will pitch for Single-A Charlotte on Saturday. ... Rays C Ryan Hanigan (left oblique strain) ran the bases after defensive drills. ... Boston C Ryan Lavarnway (wrist) was sent to Triple-A Pawtucket to continue his rehab assignment. ... Tampa Bay plans to recall RHP Jeremy Hellickson (elbow surgery) from Charlotte to make his second big league start of the season on Saturday night. The Red Sox will counter with RHP John Lackey. Carlos Valderrama Jersey . Long snapper Patrick Mannelly announced Friday that he is retiring after a 16-year-career with the Bears, a span in which he played in a team record 245 games and snapped the ball 2,282 times. Pablo Armero Jersey .S. - Nova Scotias Mary Fay guaranteed at least one more match and a shot at the Canadian junior curling championships final on home ice. http://www.soccercolombiamart.com/world-cup-farid-diaz-football-jersey/ . Catch all the action on TSN2 and TSN GO at 9pm et/6pm pt. San Antonio took the series lead Monday night with a 122-105 home victory in Game 1. The Spurs used a balanced scoring attack and clamped down defensively late in the third quarter to claim the win.SAN JOSE SHARKSLAST SEASON: 51-22-9, 111 points. Lost to Los Angeles in first round of playoffs.COACH: Todd McLellan, 7th season with Sharks, 271-130-57; seventh overall in NHL.ADDED: F John Scott, F Tye McGinn, D Taylor Fedun.LOST: D Dan Boyle, D Brad Stuart, F Marty Havlat.PLAYER TO WATCH: Joe Thornton. Despite finishing second in the league in assists last season, Thornton was stripped of his captaincy this summer in response to the Sharks playoff collapse against Los Angeles. San Jose became the fourth NHL team to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games. That prompted a search for new leaders. Thornton expressed no desire to leave San Jose but how he reacts tto the new role and how he plays this season will be key questions going forward. Marlos Moreno Jersey. OUTLOOK: The Sharks began the off-season with general manager Doug Wilson talking of rebuilding and becoming a tomorrow team after being a Stanley Cup contender for most of the past decade. Wilson has altered his stance a bit and the players still believe this team can compete with the other powers out West. Much of the success will hinge on continued improvement from younger core players like Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Logan Couture and Tomas Hertl; Brent Burns move back to defence from forward; and more depth on the bottom two lines to take pressure off Thornton and Patrick Marleau.
