    Desmond Jennings homered, Jeremy Hellickson pitched six strong innings and the Tampa Bay Rays ended their drought at Fenway Park, beating the Red Sox 6-2 Wednesday night. Tampa Bay won at Fenway for the first time in six tries this season. It was only one game, but the complete effort in a win over the first-place Red Sox could be just what the doctor ordered as the Rays travel to New York on Thursday to begin a four-game series with the Yankees. The Rays avoided a three-game sweep at the hands of the American League East rival Red Sox, cruising to a 6-2 win as they kept their heads above water in the standings, improving to 37-35. After scoring two combined runs in a pair of losing efforts in Tuesday's doubleheader, wasting an impressive start from rookie Jake Odorizzi, Maddon joked that the Rays needed a pair of shutouts to have any chance at winning. After going a combined 1 for 7 in his extended major league debut during Tuesday's doubleheader, top prospect Wil Myers delivered a two-run double during Tampa Bay's three-run seventh that broke the game open.
