Rafael Devers drove in both Red Sox runs Wednesday in a loss to Tampa Bay. The 22-year-old continued his torrid stretch with a two-run single in the third off Rays hurler Charlie Morton. Devers found the hole between third and shortstop on a soft roller to the left side, increasing his team-leading RBI total to 79 in the process. The All-Star snub leads the majors with 17 RBI since the All-Star break.
