BOSTON, Ma. -- A broken-bat single got the karma moving in the Rays' direction Thursday night in a 9-2 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

By winning, Tampa Bay (83-66) whittled Boston's (86-63) lead for the American League Wild Card spot to three games. While doing so, the Rays took their sixth consecutive game against the Red Sox while moving to 10-5 on the season against their AL East rivals.

"It's one game, one game, and it's great to get the first one like we did," manager Joe Maddon said. "And we can move to tomorrow, but it's about Friday night now. Tonight was about Thursday. Tomorrow's about Friday. Let's win tomorrow night's game and move on from there."

Tampa Bay has 13 games remaining in the season, including three against the Red Sox. On Friday night, that will mean a date with Red Sox ace Josh Beckett.

DENVER, Co. -- This time, the run support came early and often for Ryan Vogelsong.

Pablo Sandoval became the first Giants player to hit for the cycle since 2007 and Vogelsong added to his stellar season with another strong outing, as the Giants hung on to beat the Rockies, 8-5, on Thursday night in front of 34,364 at Coors Field.

The victory was the fifth straight for the Giants, who cut the idle D-backs' lead in the National League West to seven games.

Sandoval homered in the first, singled in the second, doubled in the fifth and legged out a triple to complete the cycle -- in his first four at-bats -- in the sixth. He became the first Giant to hit for the cycle since Fred Lewis accomplished the feat on May 13, 2007, also at Coors Field.
