Myers gets tiebreaking hit, Rays beat Red Sox 4-3
       ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ Wil Myers hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Thursday night to avoid a three-game sweep.
        Myers drove in Evan Longoria, who also doubled off Rubby De La Rosa (0-1), to give the Rays a 4-3 lead.
        Jake McGee (5-3) pitched a scoreless eighth before Fernando Rodney got three outs to earn his 34th save for the Rays, who lead the race for the second AL wild card despite going 5-13 since Aug. 25.
        David Ortiz and Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered for Boston, which has an 8{-game advantage over second-place Tampa Bay in the AL East.
        The Red Sox threatened in the ninth when Stephen Drew had an infield single and pinch-hitter Mike Carp walked with one out. Rodney worked out of the jam when pinch-hitter Will Middlebrooks lined out to third and Dustin Pedroia popped out.
