In the resumption of a game suspended by rain in the middle of the ninth inning Friday, the Tampa Rays outlasted the Red Sox, scoring two runs in the top of the 12th inning, to break a 1-1 tie and post a 3-1 victory before a Fenway Park crowd of 37,084.

Pat Burrell did the damage with his first homer of the season, a two-run shot off reliever Manny Delcarmen that scored Evan Longoria, who reached on a lead-off walk. The official time of the game was 4 hours and 18 minutes.

Lance Cormier (2-0) was credited with the win while Delcarmen (0-1) absorbed the loss (1 inning, 1 hit, 2 runs, 1 walk) while Rafael Soriano picked up the save.

After issuing a lead-off walk to Evan Longoria, Manny Delcarmen, the pride of West Roxbury High (Class of 2000), induced Carlos Pena, the pride of Haverhill High (Class of 1995), to hit a pop fly to left. After he got B.J. Upton to line out to left for the second out of the inning, Delcarmen got taken deep to the Monster Seats in left by Pat Burrell, allowing the Rays to score two runs on Burrell’s first homer of the season. Rays 12th: 2 runs, 1 hit, none left on base.


Bottom 11th: Rays 1, Sox 1
Beltre just hit into a double play, dousing the Sox rally. Evan Longoria atoned for his error on Kevin Youkilis’ grounder to third, by fielding Beltre’s groundball and getting the force out on Youkilis at third and doubling off Beltre at first to end the inning. Manny Delcarmen is now pitching for the Sox. Daniel Bard’s line: 2 innings, 2 strikeouts. Sox 11th: no runs, 2 hits, 1 error, 2 left on base.

End 9th: Rays 1, Sox 1
We are headed to extra innings after Friday night’s rain-suspended game was resumed at 7:13 tonight. Lance Cormier went to the mound for the Rays and was nearly taken yard by David Ortiz, who scorched Wheeler’s second pitch down the right field line. Sadly, it went foul. Wheeler then got Ortiz to ground out to first, Adrian Beltre to ground to third and struck out Jeremy Hermida (78, cutter) to send the game into extra innings. Daniel Bard entered the game in the 10th for Jonathan Papelbon, whose wife, Ashley, delivered the couple’s second child earlier in the day: a boy, Gunner Robert (8 pounds, 8 ounces, 21 inches). Sox 9th: no runs, no hits, none left on base.
