Evan Longoria also went deep in Tampa Bay's victory, which broke a two-game skid.

Roberto Hernandez (4-6) collected the win, yielding three runs on seven hits over seven innings. He issued a pair of walks and struck out seven.

Boston starter Jon Lester (6-3) remained winless in five starts, surrendering seven runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 frames.

Mike Napoli drove in two runs for the American League East-leading Red Sox.
