THIS is the Eduardo Rodriguez we could REALLY get used to seeing.

The Red Sox lefty tossed another gem Monday night, allowing just two hits over seven innings, as Boston roughed up the Rays 9-4 in Tampa.

For Rodriquez (pictured) it was his team-leading 12th win of the season, and his ERA now sits at 4.10 which is the lowest it has been all season.

The Red Sox scored seven times in the top of the third inning with J.D. Martinez, Andrew Benintendi and Sam Travis all hitting home runs in the frame.

Benintendi led the offense with three hits while Martinez drove in four runs.

Nathan Eovaldi made his relief debut with mixed results. He struck out two and had excellent velocity, but looked pretty rusty as you might expect after making his first appearance since April. He allowed three runs on five hits in just two-thirds of an inning.
