Red Sox

Final: Red Sox 11, Rays 2

The Red Sox first win of the season was also a statement. Embarrassed over the weekend by the Orioles, the Red Sox gathered themselves and pounded one of their chief tormentors in recent season, beating the Tampa Bay Rays with a resounding 11-2 decision.

Nick Pivetta picked up the win with five shutout innings and the Sox bats, so quiet in their sweep to Baltimore, erupted for 16 hits, with every member of the lineup except one collecting at least one hit.

J.D. Martinez supplied a three-run homer and Xander Bogaerts had a four-hit night as the Sox snapped Tampa Bay's eight-game winning streak at Fenway.
