With two on and two out in the top of the ninth, Duran would smoke one into right field off Peter Fairbanks scoring Rafael Devers.
The RBI single was Duran’s 10th of the season for the rookie. Duran would give the Red Sox a 3-2 lead which ended up being the final.
The rookie outfielder has been struggling at the plate batting .215.
Chris Sale Day
The Red Sox turned to ace Chris Sale to end the two game losing skid to the Rays. Sale did not disappoint going six innings, striking out three, walking two and surrendered two earned runs.
The left-hander did not factor in the decision. Sale remains 3-0 through four starts this season. This season Sale has gone 21.1 IP, giving up 19 hits, 6 ER, 5 walks and 32 strikeouts.
Christian Vazquez with a three hit game
Vazquez also helped the cause at the plate with three hits. One of those hits was his sixth home run of the season. Vazquez would crush a ball thrown by Rays reliever Colin McHugh into the seats. The home run would tie the game for Boston.
Adam Ottavino recorded the save in the ninth. The unofficial Red Sox closer through a perfect ninth inning to earn the save. The Sox and Rays play one more game tomorrow night at the Trop.
