BOSTON -- It was only fitting that a batter who was by a pitch scored the winning run. Mike Ditka Bears Jersey . Beanballs were the theme Friday night as the Red Sox and Rays had another AL East rumble, with Boston earning a 3-2 victory on A.J. Pierzysnkis RBI triple in the 10th inning that drove in Jonny Gomes. The Red Sox rushed out of the dugout -- for once not to possibly fight their division rivals -- and celebrated their fifth straight win following a 10-game skid. A chunk of Bostons coaching staff had to watch the comeback from the clubhouse, where they were sent during a string of ejections in the latest testy game between the clubs, which included a bench-clearing scrum in the fourth inning. "When we have four people ejected and also have three people hit by pitches, and they have none, thats a hard one to figure out," said Boston manager John Farrell, who was the first of three Boston skippers to get tossed. His two successors joined him later along with starting pitcher Brandon Workman, who was tossed in the sixth after a throwing a high pitch that sailed behind Tampa Bay slugger Evan Longoria. Farrell was still irked after the game that Tampa Bay ace David Price was not ejected. Farrell objected after Prices first pitch to David Ortiz hit him in the hip, setting the tone for the night. Plate umpire Dan Bellino immediately issued a warning to both benches, which irked Farrell enough to get him out of the dugout, then quickly ejected when he crossed Bellinos threshold. "There is intent to that pitch. As emphatic as Dan Bellinos warning was, it sure seemed like Dan Bellino felt like there was intent as well," Farrell said. Ortiz felt it was retribution for two homers he hit off Price in the playoffs last year. "If youre mad because I take you deep twice, let me let you know," Ortiz said during a postgame rant about Price. "Ive got almost 500 homers in this league. Its part of the game, son." There was much more to come, including a bench-clearing scrum after Price plunked Boston first baseman Mike Carp in the fourth. No punches were thrown and the only ejection was to Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo, who threw down his hat and burst into an argument when he learned Price wasnt tossed. Price said the pitch to Carp was not intentional. "Thats not something Im trying to do," Price said. "I had six lefties in the lineup today. Ive got to be able to throw my fastball in." Crew chief Jeff Kellogg explained to a pool reporter why Price wasnt tossed after the warnings and his second hit batter. "If we feel there was intent to hit the batter, he would have been ejected," Kellogg said. "We felt the pitch was certainly inside but not intentional. So thats why he stayed in the game." Andrew Miller (2-4) got the win. Juan Carlos Oviedo (1-2) took the loss after hitting Gomes, who was ejected Sunday when the Rays and Red Sox cleared the benches in Tampa Bay. "I thought it was a great game. I thought it was handled great on the field by the umpires," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. "Its always going to be felt from the perspective of the sides. Im going to defend the Rays and theyre going to defend the Red Sox." These teams have a long history of bad blood, and Friday night was the latest chapter. Boston retaliated in the sixth when Workman threw behind Longoria, who was visibly upset. Longoria and Pierzynski had a conversation at home plate, and a handful of players from both dugouts ventured a few steps onto the field, but no trouble ensued. Workman was ejected and third base coach Brian Butterfield was automatically tossed with him, leaving hitting coach Greg Colbrunn as the fourth Red Sox skipper of the night. The last-place Rays had won five straight against the Red Sox, including a three-game sweep last weekend that extended Bostons losing streak to 10 in a row. The Red Sox vented some of the frustration during a bench-clearing dustup Sunday at Tampa Bay. David DeJesus led off the game with a double and went to third on an error by Grady Sizemore in right field. Ben Zobrist followed with a fielders choice that allowed DeJesus to score and give Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead. The Rays added a run in the fifth when Escobar led off with a double and scored on an RBI single by DeJesus. Boston cut it to 2-1 in the fifth on two-out singles by Xander Bogaerts, Dustin Pedroia and Ortiz. Bogaerts added an RBI double to tie it at 2-all in the seventh after Jackie Bradley Jr. led off with a single. Price left after seven innings, allowing two runs and six hits. He struck out six, walked one and hit two batters. NOTES: Boston RHP Rubby De La Rosa is scheduled to make his first start of the season Saturday against Tampa Bay RHP Jake Odorizzi (2-4). ... Price entered with a 6-1 record at Fenway Park. ... With Prices no-decision, Tampa Bay starting pitchers have gone 12 straight games without a victory. ... The Rays activated Ben Zobrist (thumb) from the 15-day DL and started him at second base. ... Boston placed 1B-C Ryan Lavarnway on the 15-day disabled list with a broken bone in his left hand and recalled OF-1B Alex Hassan from Triple-A Pawtucket. Dick Butkus Bears Jersey . Portland won Game 4 Sunday night at the Moda Center and are now up 3-1. The last time the Blazers won a playoff series came in the 2000 Western Conference semifinals against the Utah Jazz. Roquan Smith Youth Jersey . Bowditch, the 30-year-old Australian seeking his first PGA Tour title, shot a 4-under 68 to reach 12 under at TPC San Antonio. Matt Kuchar and Andrew Loupe were tied for second. Kuchar shot 65, and Loupe had a 70.NEW ORLEANS -- The Pelicans offence hit a cold streak at the worst time. Mike Conley hit a driving layup against Austin Rivers with 1.5 seconds remaining to complete Memphis 9-0 run over the final 3:22 and the Grizzlies escaped with a 90-88 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night. Conley initially drove to his right, and then split the lane before pulling up just short of the goal for his game-winning basket.. The Pelicans were out of timeouts and Rivers missed a long desperation shot as time expired. "Its very sweet," said Conley, who scored 16 points in leading the Grizzlies to their fourth consecutive win. "We knew who they had on the floor. They were going to switch the pick-and-roll. I ended up splitting it and having a lane." The undermanned Pelicans, playing without guards Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon, missed five shots and committed one turnover during the final 3:22. "Its tough," Rivers said. "We felt like we had the game won. We should have known better. They are a veteran team." Anthony Morrow missed a 3-point attempt with 14.3 seconds remaining, setting up the Grizzlies for the winning shot. "It felt great," Morrow said of his missed shot. "I was open, just a little bit off." Marc Gasol added 15 points, and Zach Randolph and Tony Allen 13 each for Memphis. Anthony Davis scored 29 points, including 22 in the first half, for the Pelicans, who had won their past three games. Rivers scored 14 points, Brian Roberts 12 and Morrow 10 for New Orleans. Davis, who turned 21 Tuesday, added 10 rebounds and four blocked shots. "The last few minutes we could not get anything," Davis said. Akiem Hicks Jersey. "We couldnt run a play. We had a couple of bad shots, turned the ball over." After taking a 57-48 halftime lead, the Pelicans were held to 31 points in the second half, equaling their second-quarter output. New Orleans, which scored 14 points in the final quarter, finished with 17 turnovers and 16 assists. "We just couldnt score," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. "We couldnt get into an offence. We kind of went away from the things that weve been doing, pushing the ball down the floor off stops." Memphis juggled its defence against Davis in the second half, using Tayshaun Prince, then James Johnson. The ploy worked as Davis, who was 8 of 11 in the first half, finished 9 of 14. "I thought that was effective but it was an effort thing," Memphis coach David Joerger said. "We didnt play hard enough or with enough energy in the first half. Then, in the second half, we picked up more energy. We went small a little bit just to kind of junk up the game." Davis was dominant in the first half, scoring 22 points. He displayed his full arsenal, scoring underneath or stepping out and hitting the open jumper. Randolph led the Grizzlies with 12 points and four rebounds in the half. He was 5 of 7, taking advantage of his matchup against the Pelicans Alexis Ajinca. NOTES: The Pelicans made all of 22 of their free throw attempts, the first time they were perfect from the line since March 18, 2013, against Golden State. It was the second most free throws made while staying perfect in franchise history.
