Recap: Boston vs. Tampa Bay

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Christian Vazquez smacked a two-run homer among his four hits, three RBI and two runs scored as the Boston Red Sox routed the Tampa Bay Rays, 11-1, in the rubber match of a three-game set.

Rusney Castillo belted a three-run shot for his first career homer for Boston, which has won four of its last six games. Allen Webster (5-3) allowed a run on seven hits and a walk over seven innings to notch the win.
