|Struggling Pena Has 3 RBI's in Rays Win Over Sox
|ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Struggling slugger Carlos Pena drove in three runs, Wade Davis allowed three runs while pitching into the seventh inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Chicago White Sox 8-5 on Saturday night.
Pena hit a three-run double during a four-run fourth inning off John Danks (4-4) to put Tampa Bay up 6-2. The other run scored on Gabe Kapler's bunt.
Pena has just 12 hits in 94 at-bats during May. The first baseman was 1 for 5, including two strikeouts, on Saturday.
Davis (5-4) scattered six hits. The right-hander was coming off a loss to Boston last Monday in which he allowed five runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings.
Carlos Quentin and Alexei Ramirez homered for the White Sox, who are 4-17 -- including 12 losses in the last 13 attempts -- in games following a victory this season.
