Red Sox lose 10th straight, brawl with Tampa Bay

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The World Series champion Boston Red Sox lost their 10th straight game, skidding to their longest slump in 20 years and brawling with the Tampa Bay Rays during an 8-5 defeat Sunday.

Rays pinch-hitter Sean Rodriguez connected for a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the seventh. Yunel Escobar hit a two-run double later in the inning and then took third on defensive indifference, setting off the fracas.

Escobar, Rodriguez and Boston's Jonny Gomes were all ejected.

This is Boston's worst losing streak since an 11-gamer from June 8-19, 1994. The Red Sox have been outscored 52-24 over their last 10 games.
