FORT MYERS, Fla.-- Chris Archer pitched two scoreless innings in his spring training debut, Jose Molina reached base three times and scored twice, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 8-0 Tuesday.

Archer, who finished third in the A.L. Rookie of the Year voting, allowed a hit and struck out one.

Molina, among the slowest players in baseball went 2-for-2, including a double, walked and drove in a run. He scored from first on David DeJesus' triple in the second inning. The catcher scored two runs in a game just twice last season, the last time on July 5.

Rays right fielder Matt Joyce went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored.

Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz made his Grapefruit League debut for Boston, going one inning, giving up a run on three hits and a walk with one strikeout.
