ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Chris Sale has high praise for Boston teammate Mookie Betts, and with good reason.

Betts hit his major league-leading 16th homer, Sale struck out nine in 7 2/3 innings and the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 on Tuesday night.

"I knew once we got a lead with that guy, we were in pretty good shape," Betts said.
