Red Sox get 1st series win, beat Rays 6-5 behind Benintendi

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Perhaps the Boston Red Sox will look back at this weekend as the games that got their title defense back on track.

The World Series champions won a series for the first time this season when Andrew Benintendi hit a grand slam and a tiebreaking ninth-inning sacrifice fly and catcher Christian Vazquez picked off Tommy Pham for the final out in a 6-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday night.

"These are the games that we expect to win, and the last two days we've grinded out at bats and came out on top," Benintendi said. "We'll figure some things out and once we hit our stride, it'll be a lot more fun."
