Jackie Bradley, Jr. Homers In 7-2 Red Sox Win Over Rays

Jackie Bradley, Jr. went 2-2—including a solo home run—in Boston's 7-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at jetBlue Park in Fort Myers. JBJ is looking to be more aggressive in his at-bats this year—perhaps following the example of teammate Xander Bogaerts in 2015. First-base prospect Sam Travis doubled and knocked in two runs. Joe Kelly went two scoreless innings—giving up two hits, walking one and striking out one.
