Sale (pictured) struck out an even dozen and only allowed two hits but both left the ballpark.

Logan Morrison put the Rays on the board first with a solo home run in the top of the second inning. After Betts homered in the bottom of the third to give Boston a 2-1 lead, Kevin Kiermaier hit a two-run shot of his own in the fifth to give Tampa Bay a 3-2 advantage.

Boston regained the lead in the fifth courtesy of RBI doubles by Marrero and Betts.

Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. each had two hits in the win.

Joe Kelly pitched a scoreless eighth inning, touching 101 mph on the Fenway radar gun in striking out two. Craig Kimbrel picked up his eleventh save of the year with a one-two-three ninth.

The game was moved from an evening start to the afternoon due to heavy rain expected in Boston on Saturday night.
