PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) - Jamey Wright's bid to make the Tampa Bay Rays his 10th major league team began with a scoreless inning.

The 38-year-old right-hander retired the only three batters he faced during Monday's 6-3 victory over a Boston split squad. He struck out Dustin Pedroia and Shane Victorino, then escaped without allowing a hit when third baseman Ryan Roberts made a diving stop on Jonny Gomes' hard grounder and scrambled to his feet to throw to first to end the third inning.

Pedroia homered in the first off Rays starter Alex Cobb. Newly-acquired Mike Carp had a RBI double in his debut for the Red Sox.

Alfredo Aceves started and worked two innings for Boston, allowing a two-run double to Yunel Escobar. Roberts also had a two-run double for the Rays.
