(AP) — Desmond Jennings homered, Jeremy Hellickson pitched six strong innings and the Tampa Bay Rays ended their drought at Fenway Park, beating the Red Sox 6-2 Wednesday night.

The Rays had scored a total of five runs in losing their first five games this season at the ballpark, including a doubleheader sweep on Tuesday during which they managed a pair of runs on 10 combined hits.

Jose Molina and Evan Longoria each had three of Tampa Bay’s 15 hits and the Rays ended a three-game losing streak with their second win in eight games.

Top prospect Wil Myers delivered a two-run double during Tampa Bay’s three-run seventh that broke the game open.

Hellickson (5-3) surrendered two runs on seven hits with four strikeouts and no walks.

Ryan Dempster (4-8) gave up three runs on eight hits over six innings.
