BOSTON -- The Rays put on an offensive show during Tuesday night's 14-5 win over the Red Sox, which featured an assortment of highlights.

For starters, the 14 runs were the second most the team has scored against Boston. The most the Rays scored vs. the Red Sox was 15 on July 24, 2009.

Evan Longoria's fifth-inning home run was the 12th of his career against Boston pitching, the most he has against any opponent. He also has 12 against the Orioles. Longoria's 12 homers against the Sox tied him with Carlos Pena and Mark Teixeira for the most homers against them since 2008.

Carl Crawford set a career high with three doubles, all coming in his first three at-bats. He also had four hits in the game, matching his season high; he has had four hits in a game eight times this season, which leads the Major Leagues.

The Rays hit a season-high five home runs, which is the most since they hit five against vs. Rockies in Colorado on June 16, 2009.

Finally, the Rays batted around in the fourth and fifth innings, which was the second time this season they have sent at least nine men to the plate in consecutive frames in the same game. They also did it April 29 against the Royals.
