PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — Justin Ruggiano homered after Fernando Perez led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a triple, giving the Tampa Bay Rays a 6-4 victory over a Boston Red Sox split squad Saturday.

Andy Sonnanstine and Wade Davis each walked three as the Red Sox took a 3-1 lead in the first four innings.

Ben Zobrist and Kelly Shoppach hit their first home runs of the spring off Adam Mills in the fourth inning to put the Rays ahead, 4-3.

Shoppach's homer came after a single by B.J. Upton.

Boston starter Felix Doubront struck out three in two shutout innings.

The Red Sox brought their starting infield on a day when most of the team stayed in Fort Myers, Fla., to play the Minnesota Twins.
