Brian Johnson got the win despite that shaky initial frame. He shut Tampa Bay down over the next 4.2 innings before turning things over the bullpen. With the win, Johnson is now 4-3 on the season.

The Red Sox scored a pair in the bottom of the first on a two-RBI triple by Xander Bogaerts (pictured) in the bottom of the first.

They tied the game in the fourth on a run-scoring single by Eduardo Nunez and took the lead an inning later on Mitch Moreland's single which drove in Mookie Betts.

Jackie Bradley Jr. doubled home an insurance run in the sixth and J.D. Martinez finished things off in the seventh with an RBI single.

Bogaerts lead the offense with three hits; JBJ and Moreland each had two in the victory.
