BOSTON -- A little infusion of youth and a solid start by Jon Lester kept the Boston Red Sox rolling along. Casey Short Jersey . Lester pitched seven shutout innings and Brock Holt drove in two runs with one of his major league record-tying four doubles to lift the Red Sox to their seventh straight win, completing a three-game sweep over the reeling Tampa Bay Rays with a 4-0 victory on Sunday. Bostons streak follows a 10-game skid, its longest in 20 years. The Red Sox said that matches a major league record for consecutive wins after a double-digit losing stretch, according to research by the Elias Sports Bureau. The 1989 Detroit Tigers did it after losing 12 in a row, and the 1942 Pittsburgh Pirates also did it after dropping 10 straight. Rookies Garin Cecchini and Adam Hassen collected their first major league hits to go along with fellow rookie Holts big day. "Its great. It kind of makes you reminisce of all the good firsts and just how excited theyll be," Lester said. "Thats the cool part about this game, to see these guys come up and doing this stuff to help out the team." Holt tied a major league record for doubles in a single game one day after he hit his first major league homer in Saturday nights win. Cecchini added an RBI double for his first major league hit. "Were tapping into organization depth and guys are ready to contribute," Boston manager John Farrell said. "It is a special day. I dont know the last time two Red Sox players have gotten their first major league hits in a game." Evan Longoria had a pair of singles for the Rays, who dropped their season-high sixth straight. Tampa Bay owns the ALs worst record at 23-34. Holt has sparked Bostons offence by moving into the leadoff spot, which had been a weakness since Jacoby Ellsbury left via free agency during the off-season, signing with the New York Yankees. "Its a fun day," Holt said. "Anytime you can go out and do something like that, I had a little bit of luck on my side, too." Lester (6-6) allowed four hits, while striking out 12 and walking one. It was the left-handers 19th career double-digit strikeout game, coming after he struck out a career-best 15 against the Oakland Athletics on May 3. The Rays looked punchless for the third straight game. "Its been kind of ongoing for a little while now," Tampa Bay second baseman Logan Forsythe said. "A team doesnt stay stagnant for that long. Were going to get hot, were going to get going soon. Its just a matter of time. Were putting the work in. Now we just wait and see when it happens, and when it happens, just roll with it." Tampa Bay was held to three runs in the series and has scored two or fewer runs in nine of its past 14 games, losing eight of those. "I really believe that runs there," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "Its really pretty much rooted in one component of our game -- were just not a consistent offensive team right now." Edward Mujica and Koji Uehara each pitched an inning to complete the five-hit shutout. For the second straight day, the clubs were cordial to each other on the field after three Boston managers and a pitcher were ejected in Fridays game. Rays starter David Price hit David Ortiz in the first inning and Mike Carp later in the fourth. The Carp one triggered the benches to clear, the second time in less than a week the two teams had a scrum. Last Sunday in Tropicana Field, players in Bostons dugout started yelling at Yunel Escobar when he stole third with the Rays up by five runs late. The Red Sox broke ahead 3-0 in the fourth against Erik Bedard (2-4). Hassan singled to centre for his first hit after Jonny Gomes singled leading off. Jackie Bradley Jr. then walked before Jonathan Herrera had a sacrifice fly, making it 1-0. Holt followed with his two-run double. Bedard lasted 4 2-3 innings, allowing three runs and five hits, walking four and striking out four. NOTES: Victor Martinez was the most recent player to get four doubles in a game, coming on June 1, 2010, while with the Red Sox. ... The last pair of Red Sox rookies to get their first major league hits in a game were Steve Dillard and Andy Merchant on Sept. 28, 1975. ... Boston 2B Dustin Pedroia was back in the lineup after missing Saturday with a sore right hand, but his day was cut short when he was ejected at the end of the third by home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. ... Tampa Bay placed OF Wil Myers on the 15-day DL before the game and recalled 1B/OF Jerry Sands from Triple-A Durham. Sands went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. ... Rays SS Escobar was out of the starting lineup for the second straight game with a tight left quad, but he pinch hit in the seventh and flied to centre. ... It was Lesters 233rd career start, moving him into fifth on the clubs all-time list. ... Before the game, the Red Sox called up 3B Cecchini from Triple-A Pawtucket and optioned RHP Alex Wilson. Rose Lavelle Jersey . According to a report from ESPN, Lynch wants a new contract from the Seahawks, and will likely skip all off-season workouts until he can renegotiate his deal with the Seahawks. Abby Smith Jersey .C. -- Lucy Li made two double bogeys, a triple bogey and finished her historic round at the U. http://www.socceruswntshop.com/kelley-ohara-usa-jersey/ . Canada will host the second stop on the circuit, the 2014 Skate Canada International in Kelowna, British Columbia from October 31 - November 2, 2014 at Prospera Place.BOSTON -- Miguel Cabrera was sitting at his locker when a slight smile appeared as he was asked about how well the Detroit Tigers have started this season. "I mean, it looks like it," he said after the Tigers completed a three-game series sweep over Boston with their 11th straight road win, 6-2 over the Red Sox on Sunday night. "Our coaches, our staff make sure we got out there ready to play," he said. "You always want to do that. Its the way to play. You feel more comfortable." Victor Martinez hit a two-run homer and Torii Hunter added a solo shot as the Tigers posted their sixth consecutive win and 15th in 18 games to raise their majors-best record to 27-12. Ian Kinsler had four hits, and Cabrera added three and two RBIs as Detroit dominated in the first meeting since losing last seasons AL championship series to the eventual World Series champion Red Sox in six games. "It really comes down to the starting pitching and the bullpen," Detroits first-year manager Brad Ausmus said. "The starters have set the tempo and got us deep into the game. Weve also got some big hits. Miggy and Victor have been hitting well all season long." Xander Bogaerts had two hits and an RBI for struggling Boston, which has lost a season-high four straight. It was the first time the Red Sox were swept at home in a multigame series by the Tigers since losing four in June of 1983. "With the top of their order, any mistake we made, we paid for it," Boston manager John Farrell said. "They came in swinging the bats well, and when Jake (Peavy) missed his location, that lineup made us pay for it." Bostons David Ortiz went 0 for 2 with two walks, ending his 10-game hitting streak. Anibal Sanchez (1-2), activated from the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day after being sidelined since April 27 with a blister on his right middle finger, worked five innings for the victory. Last seasons AL ERA champ gave up two runs -- one earned -- and five hits, striking out three and walking three, including one intentional to Ortiz on a 3-2 pitch. "He was actually pretty crisp. Fastball, changeup, slider all looked pretty good,&" Ausmus said. Lindsey Horan Jersey. . "Command around the zone was pretty good. We wanted to stop him around 85ish pitches. He got us through five. A pretty good first start back off the DL." Trailing 1-0 in the third, the Tigers scored three runs off Peavy (1-2). Cabreras RBI single tied it before Martinez followed with his homer into Bostons bullpen. They made it 4-1 on Cabreras sacrifice fly in the fifth. Peavy was tagged for five runs on 11 hits in six innings. He has given up at least one homer in each of his nine starts, the majors longest active streak. "We just caught a team when they were hot and they played better throughout the series than we did," Peavy said. Hunters homer, which cleared the Green Monster and left Fenway Park entirely, made it 6-2 in the seventh. Boston loaded the bases with one out in the fifth, but managed only one run to cut it to 4-2 when Dustin Pedroia scored after third baseman Don Kelly threw low to the plate on a slow grounder for an error. Grady Sizemore then lined to Sanchez, who fired to third and doubled off Shane Victorino. Mike Avilas RBI single increased Detroits lead to 5-2 in the sixth. The Red Sox -- held to one run in the first two games -- hadnt led in the series until Bogaerts RBI single gave them a 1-0 edge in the second. NOTES: Peavy has thrown 1,999 career innings. ... To make room on the roster for Sanchez, Detroit optioned right-hander Justin Miller to Triple-A Toledo. He was 1-0 with a 3.48 ERA in seven relief appearances. ...
