Rays Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Tampa Bay Pounded By Boston Again, 13-5

The Tampa Bay Rays were pounded by the Boston Red Sox on Friday to the tune of 12-2 and were looking to rebound from the loss on Saturday, as well as pick up manager Joe Maddon's 500th victory as the Rays manager. That milestone will have to wait another day, as the Red Sox once again pounded the rays on Saturday afternoon to the tune of 13-5.

In his return from getting hit in the head with a home run ball during batting practice, Rays starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson gave up three home runs through just five innings pitched.

The Red Sox bats were on fire, hitting a total of five homeruns in the game. The Rays jumped out to an early lead and looked as if they were going to pounce Boston, playing four runs in the first inning, but that was essentially the extent of the Rays offense for the game.

Tampa Bay has now lost four of their last five games, all of which have been on the road.
