Red Sox rally to beat Rays 8-5 and complete series sweep

The Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays faced off against each other at Tropicana Field once again on Wednesday night with Alex Cora's squad earning an 8-5 win.

Boston's starter Brayan Bello was far from perfect, as he allowed three runs in the second inning and four walks in his full six-inning outing.

Luckily the Red Sox offense exploded in the fifth for five runs with Connor Wong (1-for-5) driving in two runs and Ceddanne Rafaela (1-for-4), Rob Refsnyder (2-for-4) and Dominic Smith (1-for-3) bringing in one each.

Then, in the next frame, Boston scored another three runs due to Jarren Duran's (1-for-5) RBI double and a two-run Wilyer Abreu (2-for-4) home run.

After Bello left in the seventh, Cam Booser struggled, allowing a walk, hit and a run in his 1/3 of an inning. Greg Weissert pitched a clean 2/3 of an inning, but Zack Kelly allowed a home run in his second inning of work.

This Red Sox victory pushed their winning streak to four games and completed a three-game sweep at Tropicana Field - that's the first time the team has accomplished that feat since April 2019.

Boston's overall record improved to 26-24 and 16-11 on the road. They're also now 1.5 games above Tampa Bay for third place in the division.

With this series coming to a close, the Red Sox return to Boston, have a day off on Thursday and then host the Milwaukee Brewers for a three-game series starting on Friday.
