The rookie had four hits, including the first two home runs of his career, as the Red Sox topped the Tampa Bay Rays 11-7 at Fenway Park.

Shaw (pictured) drove in three runs and scored five in the win in leading a 16-hit Red Sox offense. Xander Bogaerts also had four hits; Rusney Castillo had three. For Bogaerts, it was the fifth time this year he's had as many as four hits.

Joe Kelly started for Boston and got the win. He went five innings and allowed five runs on nine hits and a walk. He also struck out six.

Boston jumped out to a 6-0 lead after three innings, only to watch the Rays chip away at Kelly and trim the lead to 7-6 after 5.5 innings.
