BOSTON (AP) -- Kevin Kiermaier hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the seventh inning, Manuel Margot had four hits and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 8-7 on Monday night.
Kiermaier's opposite-field line drive off reliever Jeffrey Springs (0-1) rolled all the way to the wall in left-center field. Yoshi Tsutsugo and Margot scored after both singled to start the inning. Kiermaier had three RBIs.
"Any win is nice. Lot of offense today, which is encouraging," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "Manny Margot is probably at the top of the list. We all wanted to have a big game and he did."
