Wednesday night’s game against the Rays didn’t come easy for Ryan Dempster, but he kept the Red Sox in it, and they eventually pulled away with the W.

The right-hander tossed five innings on the night. He struggled with command throughout his outing, but he was able to minimize the damage, allowing only one earned run to cross the plate. Dempster earned the no-decision, but that was of no concern to him after the game, as he only showered his teammates with compliments for the late-inning heroics.
