PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Rick Porcello stepped off the mound, gathered his thoughts and went back to work.I was off a little mechanically. It was kind of tough for me to regain my focus, so I was doing everything I could to slow the game down, the Boston pitcher said after minimizing the damage during a bases-loaded, fourth-inning jam and helping the Red Sox end a three-game losing streak with an 8-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.Porcello (9-2) retired the last nine batters he faced after walking Nick Franklin to force in the only run he allowed. The right-hander scattered five hits, walked three and struck out eight over six innings.He had his back against the wall in those first four innings, but he did an outstanding job, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Even when he lost a little bit of the strike zone in the fourth inning, he didnt give in. He didnt make a mistake that might have cost him multiple runs on base hits.Travis Shaw homered and drove in five runs for the third time this season for Boston, one of just two teams -- along with Cleveland -- that have yet to have a losing streak of four or more games this year.That fourth inning, it was a huge spot to get out of that jam, Shaw said. A lot of things havent been going right, but I dont think our confidence or our faith in everybody in this locker room was swayed one bit.Shaw had a solo homer, a two-run double and a two-run single. David Ortiz continued to climb the career RBI list with a third-inning double, and Jackie Bradley Jr. and Hanley Ramirez also drove in runs for Boston.We had a very good offensive night, Farrell said. Travis Shaw hitting the home run kind of jumpstarted us, and a big night he continued to have.Shaw homered in the second inning. Ortizs hit gave the Red Sox a 2-0 lead against Chris Archer (4-11), whos gone from being an All-Star a year ago to leading the major leagues in losses this season.One night after moving ahead of Reggie Jackson for sole possession of 24th on the career RBI list, the slugger pulled even with another Hall of Famer, Frank Thomas, for 23rd with 1,704.Overall, I felt like I pitched a decent game, Archer said. But it was not good enough to get the win, so Im not very happy with it.Light-hitting Tampa Bay snapped an 11-game losing streak on Monday night, pounding out a season-high 18 hits in a 13-7 wwin that saddled Boston with its sixth loss in eight games.ddddddddddddThe offensive outburst didnt spill over to Tuesday.The Rays loaded the bases with no outs in the fourth, but only scored once -- with Porcellos third walk of the inning forcing in the run. The Boston right-hander, who had not walked more than two batters in any of his previous 19 starts, wiggled off the hook by getting Logan Forsythe to fly to right field and fanning Hank Conger and Brad Miller.Ultimately, it came down to the fourth inning, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. We didnt get it done when we had an opportunity.Porcello and reliever Junichi Tazawa didnt allow another baserunner until Millers solo homer trimmed Tampa Bays deficit to 6-2 with two outs in the seventh.Archer, who allowed four runs and seven hits over 6 1/3 innings, fell to 1-8 lifetime against the Red Sox, whove won eight straight decisions against the right-hander.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: SS Xander Bogaerts, who leads the majors with 109 hits and is batting .343, had a scheduled day off. ...
