ST. Mike Alstott Authentic Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jake Odorizzi rebounded from his worst start with a gem. Ordorizzi and two pitchers combined on a one-hitter as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 7-0 on Saturday night. Coming off a start Monday night in which he gave up a career-high eight runs over four innings in a 9-1 loss at Baltimore, Odorizzi (10-11) allowed a fourth-inning single to Will Middlebrooks, three walks and struck out seven over seven innings. "He had a really good look about him," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "Everything was working." Jeff Beliveau and Kirby Yates completed the one-hitter. Tampa Bay set a single-season team record with its 18th shutout this year. Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia was removed from the game in the second inning due to concussion-like symptoms. Pedroia was struck in the head by the arm of Logan Forsythe as the Rays infielder was sliding head-first into second while advancing on a flyball. Red Sox manager John Farrell said Pedroia was dizzy after the play, but improved as the game went on. "He caught him with a good elbow to the left side of the head," Farrell said. "Well take every precaution necessary with Dustin." Forsythe said the contact was unintentional. "The only move that I made was to try to swim-move the tag to get out of the way," Forsythe said. James Loney had an RBI double during a three-run second off Allen Webster (3-3) that put the Rays ahead 3-0. Ben Zobrist made it 4-0 on his second run-scoring grounder of the game in the fourth. Tampa Bay went up 7-0 with a three-run fifth. Two runs scored when catcher David Ross was charged with an error for an off-target throw to first on Brandon Guyers bunt single. Webster gave up six runs and five hits over four-plus innings. The Red Sox loaded the bases with two outs in the seventh when Odorizzi walked three consecutive batters, but the right-hander worked out of trouble by getting a pop fly from Xander Bogaerts. The long seventh cost Odorizzi any chance for his first career complete game. "Frustrating," he said. The start of the game was delayed 12 minutes after a series of stadium lights at Tropicana Field went out during a thunderstorm just before the scheduled first pitch. The Rays said the problem was caused by lightning striking a nearby electrical substation. TRAINERS ROOM Red Sox: Bogaerts was activated from the seven-day concussion list. He missed six games after being hit in the head by a pitch from Seattles Felix Hernandez August 22. Rays: CF Desmond Jennings was out of the lineup for the second straight game due to a sore left knee. He is not expected to start Sunday. MINOR MATTERS Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo, signed to a seven-year, $72.5 million contract a week ago, is scheduled to make his pro debut for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox in Game 2 of the GCL championship series Sunday. The Red Sox can win the league title with a win over the GCL Yankees. MYERS MISERY Rays OF Wil Myers was hitless in five at-bats and is just 6 for 42 since returning from a broken right wrist. He has struck out 16 times over the stretch. UP NEXT Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz (5-8) and Rays RHP Alex Cobb (9-6) are the scheduled starters Sunday. Cobb is 7-0 with a 2.14 ERA over his last 11 starts. Cameron Brate Buccaneers Jersey . There is no argument that the line of Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Thomas Vanek was one of the hottest in the NHL leading into the post-season, and they did combine for three goals and seven points, but it was the depth of all four lines that helped propel Montreal.

During halftime, Love told The Associated Press he would receive treatment Saturday night and hoped to play Monday night against Houston. "I knew that my quad was bothering me pretty bad so I went out there and tried to move around a little bit and it just wasnt quite right," Love said.(SportsNetwork.com) - Midwesterners heading to Florida at this time of year arent unique. Whats a trifle more rare, however, is a Sunshine State football team thatd rather be elsewhere. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter their Week 16 matchup with the visiting Green Bay Packers having lost seven consecutive games at Raymond James Stadium, including all six this season. The stretch of home futility is the franchises longest in exactly 37 years, when the expansion version lost its first 13 games on home turf before breaking through to beat the St. Louis Cardinals on Dec. 18, 1977. Weve come close quite a few times at home, Bucs coach Lovie Smith said. Once we get it going, instead of talking about getting that first win we should be talking about, Hey, we havent lost at home. We realize we have a couple of more opportunities, but what better week than (against Green Bay)? Tampa Bays wins this season came at Pittsburgh and Washington in weeks 4 and 11, respectively, but the 27-7 defeat of the Redskins has since been followed by four straight losses in which it has scored 13 points twice and 17 points twice. The Bucs have gotten past 17 points just three times in the other 10 games and are third from last in the NFL in total offense, with an average of 305.9 yards per week. Its the opposite for the Packers, who have posted 31.1 points and 383.6 yards per week, while Tampa Bay has been gashed for weekly averages of 26.2 points and 366.6 yards - both 25th in the league. Smith was zero for his last six against Green Bay while coaching the Chicago Bears, including a 21-14 loss in the NFC Championship Game at Soldier Field in January 2011. The Packers havent faced the Bucs since a 35-26 home win in Week 11 of the 2011 regular season. Hell have a slightly easier day this time around in the absence of Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, whos lost for the remainder of the season with a sprained right knee. Of course you want to finish the games with your guys, but you have to look at the bigger picture, and thats my overall health, McCoy said. I think we have a lot of great - not good, great - ahead of us for this team, this organization. A big part of that will be my health. Considering the Bucs inability to win at home, something will have to give when it comes to Green Bay, which has gone just 3-4 in seven 2014 road games compared to a pristine 7-0 slate at Lambeau Field. The Packers dropped a surprising 21-13 verdict last week at Buffalo, a defeat that both ended a five-game win streak and dropped them into a tie with Detroit atop the NFC North. The Lions were 19-7 winners when the teams played at Ford Field in September and could clinch the division title this weekend with a win against Chicago coupled with a Green Bay loss to Tampa Bay. If both Detroit and the Packers win this week, the crown will be worn by the winner of their Week 17 game in Green Bay. Lavonte David Authentic Jersey. The Packers can stay in contention for the No. 1 overall seed in the conference if they beat the Bucs and Seattle wins at Arizona. Green Bay at least secures a playoff berth - its sixth straight - with a win. Everything is right in front of us, quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. We win out, we still win the North. Rodgers completed just 17-of-42 passes - the 25 incompletions were a career- high - against the Bills, who picked him off twice while holding him to 185 yards. It was the first game this season in which he hadnt thrown a touchdown pass, and put a dent in what had been a league-best 119.0 passer rating. It wasnt my best day by any stretch of the imagination, he said. Ive got to play better for us to win, and I expect more of myself. All five of Rodgers interceptions have come in road games, and hes failed to exceed 210 yards four times in those seven starts. He has 12 TD passes away from home, compared to 23 at Lambeau. The last four road games have resulted in losses to New Orleans and Buffalo and three-point victories over Miami and Minnesota. This is a road game we have to have, said Packers coach Mike McCarthy, who can pass Vince Lombardi on the all-time Green Bay wins list (including postseason). We clearly understand the importance of winning in December, and we need to take it up a notch as a football team. WHAT TO WATCH FOR Getting Rodgers Right As mentioned, Green Bays MVP candidate heads into the weekend after the worst statistical game of his accomplishment-rich career, the loss to the Bills in which he finished with an anemic 34.3 passer rating. Though the Bucs dont present much of a threat when it comes to wins and losses, its worth noticing that Rodgers has started twice in Tampa Bay (in 2008 and 2009) and lost both games. Remember When Another week, another chance for Tampa Bay fans to look back when they think about running back Doug Martin. The now third-year man took the league by storm as a rookie and scored 12 times while amassing 1,454 yards. But he played just six games in 2013 and has 369 rush yards this year while still battling injuries. A good sign: He comes in this week off of 2014s best game - 96 yards against Carolina. OVERALL ANALYSIS Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it, and the fact that Rodgers hasnt ever won in Tampa Bay is worth mentioning. But thats about all. Outside of those wins in the Jon Gruden and Raheem Morris eras, the Bucs have precious little to bank on this time around. Regardless of venue, the Packers have more on the line, more to look forward to and are just better by every pertinent measure.
