Red Sox - 020 201 000 - 5 8 1 Rays - 000 010 200 - 3 10 0One day after the Rays topped the Red Sox with three home runs, Boston turned the tables on Tampa Bay with three dongs of their own. Pablo Sandoval and Alejandro De Aza both went deep in the second inning, and David Ortiz cracked a two-run shot in the fourth.
Justin Masterson (5-5-1-0-6, 84) allowed only an unearned run in outpitching Chris Archer (6-5-5-1-10, 107).
The first two Rays reached base against Alexi Ogando in the sixth, but he got the next three outs. Jonathan Aro gave up two runs in the seventh, allowing Tampa Bay to cut the lead to 5-3. In the eighth, Junichi Tazawa plunked Logan Forsythe with a pitch. After two strikeouts, Tazawa wild pitched the runner to second, then got an inning-ending grounder.
Koji Uehara allowed a two-out double to Grady Sizemore in the ninth, which brought Evan Longoria to the plate as the potential tying run. A wild pitch put Sizemore on third before Longoria flew out to right.
Xander Bogaerts had two hits and scored twice. Both Ortiz and Sandoval knocked in two runs.
