ST. PETERSBURG, Fl. -- In order to have any kind of chance to make a run for the playoffs, the Rays can ill afford to lose -- particularly to the American League Wild Card-leading Red Sox.

On Friday night, the Rays did what they needed to, taking a 7-2 win over the Red Sox in the first contest of a three-game weekend series at Tropicana Field with 18,487 watching.

By winning, the Rays crept to within 5 1/2 games of the Red Sox in the AL Wild Card race to move to 79-64 on the season.

SAN FRANCISCO, Ca. -- After pitching titans Tim Lincecum and Clayton Kershaw displayed their anticipated excellence, ex-Giant Eugenio Velez scored a tiebreaking, ninth-inning run to help the Los Angeles Dodgers nip San Francisco, 2-1.

Rod Barajas singled to christen the ninth against Santiago Casilla (2-2) and was replaced by Velez, a Giant from 2007-10. Velez advanced to second base on Justin Sellers' sacrifice bunt and moved to third on a wild pitch. With the infield playing in, pinch-hitter Jamey Carroll smashed a one-hopper to second baseman Jeff Keppinger, who went to his knees to field the ball. Velez slid home, beating Keppinger's accurate throw.

Both starters worked eight innings and allowed a run, but Kershaw (18-5) improved to 4-0 in five starts against the Giants this year.
