The Rays scored seven times in the ninth inning to put away the Red Sox 11-2 on Mother's Day at Fenway Park, a game which also saw starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz leave in the third inning with what was described as tightness in his triceps.

Boston was held to single runs in the first and fifth innings on just six hits. Xander Bogaerts doubled in the first run; Dustin Pedroia added an RBI single for the second.

The bullpen was brutal - Ben Taylor, Fernando Abad, Matt Barnes, Robbie Ross Jr., and Heath Hembree combined to allow nine runs on thirteen hits and two walks over six innings.

Pomeranz (pictured) left the game in the top of the fourth inning after experiencing discomfort while warming up. He is scheduled for a precautionary MRI on Monday and hopes to make his next start.

Andrew Benintendi was 0-4 and is now in an 0-19 rut.
