Starter Scott Kazmir (11-8) got the win despite giving up five runs in five innings.
Jeremy Guthrie (7-5) was given an early 3-0 advantage, but wound up allowing eight hits and six runs in six innings to take the loss.
Upton's homer in the third gave Tampa Bay a 4-3 lead. The Devil Rays swept a team on the road for the first time in two seasons.
