The Boston Red Sox had a painfully long night at Tropicana Field on Friday.

The Red Sox finally put away the Tampa Bay Rays 13-6 after 15 innings. The middle game of the three-game series, however, was much different.

Saturday’s contest only lasted two hours and 44 minutes, with the Red Sox earning a 3-1 victory over their American League East rival. After the game, Andrew Benintendi acknowledged how important it was to pick up a win in quick fashion.
