For at least one night, someone turned the power switch to "ON."

The Red Sox slammed three home runs and rallied to beat the Rays 6-4 in Tampa Friday night at Tropicana Field.

Trailing 2-0 in the top of the fifth inning, Rafael Devers delivered an RBI double to score J.D. Martinez and one batter later Christian Vazquez put Boston ahead 3-4 with his fourth home run of the season.

Martinez drove in another run in the sixth to make it 4-2 but a Devers fielding error was followed by a two-run double by Daniel Robertson to tie the game.

Mookie Betts and Mitch Moreland (pictured) went back-to-back with solo shots in the eighth to give the Red Sox the lead and the bullpen combination of Matt Barnes and Ryan Brasier finished the Rays off. Brandon Workman was the winner in relief with 1.2 scoreless innings.

Andrew Benintendi returned to the lineup but was held hitless. Betts, Moreland and Vazquez each had two hits in the win.
