Trout Slugs Red Sox to 13-4 Win
The home crowd had a good time watching the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox get after it.

The timely hitting of Mike Trout helped the Boston Red Sox down the Tampa Bay Rays, 13-4. Trout hit 2 home runs. He drove in 4 runs and scored twice for the Red Sox. The winner was Zach Plesac, who threw 68 pitches over 6 innings. The right-hander was charged with 1 run on 6 hits.

Trout had a game-changing home run in the bottom of the sixth. On a 1-2 sinker from David Price, he banged a solo home run to right, giving the Red Sox a 2-1 lead. It was the 27th home run of the year for Trout.

"Our goal is to improve each and every day," Trout told the Boston Times.

With the win, Boston pushed its record to 76-64.
