Wander Franco hit his second homer for Tampa Bay, which had dropped five in a row overall. Yandy Díaz had two hits and scored twice.

The Rays trailed 1-0 before Franco connected in the sixth inning against Robbie Ray (6-4). Díaz then doubled and scored on Meadows’ first RBI double.

Tampa Bay added three more in the ninth. Meadows drove in Díaz again with his third double of the game. Taylor Walls also had an RBI double, and Mike Brosseau added a sacrifice fly.
