ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - David Ortiz hit a three-run homer, and the Boston Red Sox beat Tampa Bay 3-2 Sunday to end a five-game losing streak and stop the Rays' longest winning streak in 10 years at nine games.
Ortiz's 25th home run came in the third off Chris Archer (6-6) after a walk and Dustin Pedroia's infield single. Ortiz's homer was his fifth in seven games and his 29th at Tropicana Field, most among visiting players.
Desmond Jennings hit a two-run double in the third against Allen Webster (1-0), who pitched 5 1-3 innings in his first major league appearance this season.
Koji Uehara pitched the ninth for his 21st save, striking out the last three batters.

Aaron Sanchez (1-0) gave up Carlos Beltran's tying RBI hit in the eighth. Munenori Kawasaki had put Toronto ahead with a sacrifice fly that followed Dellin Betances' two-base error on a pickoff attempt.

Jacob Turner (4-6) allowed one run and six hits in 5 2-3 innings, and Steve Cishek allowed one run in the ninth before getting his 26th save.
Collin McHugh (4-9) gave up four runs and seven hits 6 1-3 innings with nine strikeouts.
