ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., June 12 (UPI) -- Daniel Nava hit a two-run homer in the third inning Wednesday and five Boston pitchers made it stand up for a 2-1 victory over Tampa Bay.

The Red Sox won for the eighth time in 11 games despite being outhit by the Rays 6-5.

Alfred Aceves (3-1) went six innings to get the win, allowing a run on four hits with four walks.

Junichi Tazawa, Craig Breslow, Koji Uehara and Andrew Bailey then teamed to throw three scoreless innings with seven strikeouts.

Bailey gave up a leadoff single to James Loney in the ninth, but retired the next three batters to record his seventh save.

Nava's home run came off Chris Archer (1-2), who struck out seven in his four innings of work. Archer retired the first two batters in the third before giving up a single to Jacoby Ellsbury and Nava's ninth home run of the year.

Tampa Bay's run came on a sixth-inning homer from Evan Longoria, his 13th.
