BOSTON (AP) – Blake Snell pitched five shutout innings and the Tampa Bay Rays backed him with a trio of 400-foot homers to beat the Boston Red Sox 9-5 and earn their fifth straight victory. Willy Adames, Brandon Lowe and Yoshi Tsutsugo all homered off Zack Godley. Austin Meadows added a solo shot in the ninth after J.D. Martinez’s grand slam helped Boston cut an eight-run lead to 8-5. Lowe had a single, homer and double in his first three at-bats but failed in his next two plate appearances to complete the cycle.
