Mookie Betts and Deven Marrero combined to drive in five runs and Chris Sale went seven strong innings as the Red Sox beat the Rays 6-3 at Fenway Park on a chilly, overcast Saturday afternoon.

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.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
