BOSTON — Randy Arozarena got twisted around in deep right field on J.D. Martinez’s two-run double with two outs in the bottom of the 12th inning, sending the Boston Red Sox past the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5.
The Rays were in line to win before Christian Vázquez belted Diego Castillo’s 0-2 pitch over the Green Monster for a tying homer leading off the ninth.
Martinez had an RBI double in the eighth for the Red Sox, who won their second straight after an 0-3 start. Manuel Margot hit a two-run single for the Rays, who wasted a strong effort by starter Tyler Glasnow.
Tampa Bay lost the series opener 11-2 on Monday night and has dropped three in a row.
