Upton lifts Rays to win
Devil Rays 2, Red Sox 1
Edwin Jackson lowered his ERA to 5.49 and improved his record to 4-12. (Mike Carlson/AP)
The Rays had just four hits on Wednesday against the Red Sox, but one big hit was enough. B.J. Upton belted a two-run homer off Daisuke Matsuzaka in the sixth inning, and the bullpen made it stick. Edwin Jackson had his fifth straight quality start, allowing one run over six innings.
