Lester beats Price, Rays to remain unbeaten

       ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ Jon Lester stayed unbeaten, Stephen Drew hit his second career grand slam and the Boston Red Sox roughed up AL Cy Young winner David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays 9-2 on Wednesday night.


        Price (1-4) departed from the marquee pitching matchup because of left triceps tightness during Boston's eight-run third inning, which Drew finished with his towering homer off Jamey Wright.


        Coming off a one-hit, complete game shutout of Toronto, Lester (6-0) allowed two runs in seven innings to help end the Rays' season-best six-game winning streak.


        The Red Sox, meanwhile, stopped a three-game losing streak that's been part of a May slide. They are 5-9 this month after going a major league-best 18-8 in April.
