Counter-balancing their three-game losing streak to start the season, the Red Sox finished off a sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays with a convincing 9-2 shellacking.
J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts combined for five RBI and Nathan Eovaldi was dominant over seven innings as the Sox won their third straight and evened out their record to 3-3.
Martinez and Christian Vazquez each homered and together have supplied all four homers the Red Sox have hit this season. For Vazquez, it was his second homer in as many games.
Until Monday, the Rays had won eight straight meetings at Fenway between the two teams.
