Rays stave off sweep, force Game 4

Jose Lobaton homered in the ninth inning to give the Tampa Bay Rays a 5-4 win over Boston on Monday and avoid an American League Division Series sweep.

Game 4 will be Tuesday at Tampa Bay.

The Red Sox had tied it in the top of the ninth on a groundout before Lobaton ended it with a two-out blast in the bottom of the inning.

Delmon Young's grounder brought in Sam Fuld to put Tampa Bay up 4-3 in the eighth. Evan Longoria hit a three-run home run in the fifth to erase a 3-0 Boston lead.
