BOSTON — Asdrubal Cabrera had a game-tying RBI double and scored on James Loney's single in the eighth inning, and the Tampa Bay Rays avoided a three-game sweep with a 4-3 comeback victory over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday.

Brandon Guyer opened the game with a homer for the Rays, who had lost 13 of their last 16 road games.

David Ortiz had an RBI for Boston, passing Hall of Famer Andre Dawson for 37th place with his 1,592nd RBI.

The Red Sox were looking for their first sweep of a series of three or more games since early June.

Steve Geltz (2-4) got the victory, retiring the only batter he faced. Brad Boxberger, the fourth reliever, struck out the final three batters for his 26th save.

The Red Sox wasted a solid start by Wade Miley, who held the Rays to two runs over 6 2-3 innings.
