ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Austin Meadows got two hits after missing the first 10 games of the season with the coronavirus and the Tampa Bay Rays stopped their losing streak at five by beating the Boston Red Sox 5-1.

Boston lost its fourth in a row, including a three-game sweep at Yankees Stadium over the weekend, and fell to 3-8 overall.

Meadows was an All-Star outfielder last year in his first full season, hitting 33 home runs. Rays starter Charlie Morton allowed one run and five hits and struck out five in 5 2/3 innings.
