FINAL SCORE: Boston Red Sox 5, Tampa Bay Rays 0
IN BRIEF: The Red Sox got a much-needed impressive outing from left-hander Martin Perez, who didn't allow a run in his five innings of work. Alex Verdugo notched a two-run shot for his first Red Sox homer, and Michael Chavis had a three-hit night that included a three-run bomb in the sixth inning.
Boston's victory ends its four-game losing streak.
