ST. PETERSBURG, Florida – For the second straight night, the Rays walked off the Red Sox by a 5-4 score in 11 innings
Nate Lowe’s two-run home run in the 11th propelled the Rays to victory. Right-hander Josh Smith, who was the 11th pitcher used by Alex Cora, served up the shot and failed to hold a 4-3 lead entering the frame.
The Sox had taken a lead in the top of the inning on a solo homer from Mitch Moreland. Moreland homered twice on Friday.
The Red Sox tied the game 3-3 in the seventh on a two-run home run by Rafael Devers, his 31st of the year. Devers passed Butch Hobson for the most home runs by a Boston third baseman in a season. Hobson hit 30 in 1977.
Xander Bogaerts homered in the fourth inning.
The series continues Sunday with Nathan Eovaldi on the mound against left-hander Ryan Yarborough.
