Second baseman Dustin Pedroia, Ranger Jackie Bradley and designated hitter Hanley Ramirez hit homers in the Boston Red Sox 8-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Pedroia (3) sent the ball to the street in the third episode, with a runner ahead and Bradley (12) did it in the fourth inning, solitary.

While Ramirez (13) punished with his toletazo in the ninth episode to the close Adam Kolarek, without runners ahead, when the pitcher had two outs in the entrance.

With his homecoming Ramirez achieved his numbered 1,000 run, which allows him to be ranked 331 on the all-time Major League roster.

The next closest mark for Ramirez is that of the 1,001 races, where he will draw 328 on the historic list to compatriot Luis Castillo, Harry Davis and Vern Stephens.

The win was credited by starter Drew Pomeranz (9-4) in six innings, conceding six hits and two runs.

The Rays lost with opener Jake Odorizzi (5-4) in four and one-third innings, taking eight hits, two homers and seven runs.
