ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Matt Moore pitched seven spotless innings and Brandon Guyer homered and drove in two runs in his return from a three-week stint on the disabled list, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-0 victory over David Price and the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday.

Moore (4-5) allowed three singles, walked two and struck out five to outpitch Price (8-5), the former Rays ace who fell to 1-3 in five career starts against his old team.

Guyer, who missed 23 games with a left hamstring strain, led off the second inning with his seventh homer. He doubled down the left-field line to make it 4-1 in the third.

Moore, meanwhile, held the Red Sox hitless until Christian Vazquez singled leading off the sixth. Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts followed with hits to load the bases with one out, but David Ortiz popped up and Hanley Ramirez hit a routine fly that ended the threat.
