Rafael Devers aside, the Red Sox offense found itself for at least one night with a 16-hit attack that resulted in Boston's 11-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Monday night at Fenway Park.

Following a dreadful performance in the three games against the Orioles, only Devers failed to get a hit, with Xander Bogaerts leading the way with four hits.

The outfield - Alex Verdugo, Hunter Renfroe, and Franchy Cordero - were a combined 6-for-11 with a pair of doubles and five RBI's.

J.D. Martinez went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI's. His average jumped to .533.

Nick Pivetta went five scoreless innings before turning things over to the bullpen. His control was a little off with four walks allowed but he allowed just two hits, displayed a very effective slider, and topped out at 97 mph with his fastball.

Lefty Martin Perez will go for Boston Tuesday night against the Rays' Tyler Glasnow.
