G155: Red Sox 7, Rays 4

Red Sox - 400 200 100 - 7 11  0
Rays    - 111 000 001 - 4  9  2
Christian Vázquez went 3-for-5, including a long three-run blast in the first inning and J.D. Martinez went 3-for-4 and drove in two runs. ... Nathan Eovaldi: 6-7-3-2-6, 100.

The damage was done by the first five batters in the order: they went 9-for-22, scored all seven runs, and had all five RBI. Batters 6-9 were only 2-for-17 (and both hits came in the first inning).

The Red Sox sent 10 men to the plate in the opening frame. Jackie Bradley struck out, Rafael Devers singled, Xander Bogaerts singled, Martinez singled (1-0), Vázquez homered (4-0), Travis singled, Gorkys Hernández fouled to first, Chris Owings singled, Juan Centeno was HBP, and JBJ was called out on strikes.

Boston scored two runs in the fourth on a bases-loaded walk and a wild pitch. The run in the seventh scored on an error.
