BOSTON (AP) - Jonny Gomes hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, completing a doubleheader sweep.
Daniel Nava was aboard on a leadoff walk when Gomes followed with a towering shot off Joel Peralta (1-3) that cleared the Green Monster and bounced off the sign just to the right of the foul pole.
It was a dramatic ending to a very long day, which started at 1 p.m. with Boston's 5-1 win in the opener, which was delayed almost three hours by rain.
Felix Doubront pitched eight shutout innings for Boston in the night game.
