|Rays Beat Peavy; White Sox
|CHICAGO (AP) Carlos Pena drove in four runs and the Rays took advantage of Jake Peavy's wildness to beat the Chicago White Sox 10-2 on Thursday night, capping the winningest road trip in Tampa Bay history.
The Rays, who were 32-49 on the road last year, have never finished a season with a winning record away from Tropicana Field. But they went 9-1 on their first trip this year, outscoring their opponents (Baltimore, Boston and Chicago) by a total of 69-23.
James Shields (2-0) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings for the Rays (12-4), off to the best start in their 13-year history. Pat Burrell, Reid Brignac and Carl Crawford drove in two runs each.
