Drew Pomeranz gave up three home runs early in the game and the Red Sox never could catch up to Tampa Bay Friday night. The result, the Rays beat the Sox 4-3.

Pomeranz struggled for five innings in his second start of the season. Four runs, six hits and two walks.

Meanwhile, the Boston offense could do little with Tampa Bay pitcher Blakne Snell. He lasted 7.1 innings, giving up just two runs and striking out nine batters.

Late in the game, J.D. Martinez drove in two runs and Mookie Betts had a RBI but the Sox could never get the tying run home.

The Sox are now 19-6 and will play Tampa Bay in a late afternoon game today. Live coverage on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket begins at 3:20p.
