ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Mike Carp had a pinch-hit grand slam in the 10th inning and the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-3 on Wednesday night.

Carp sent a drive over the center-field fence on the first pitch from Roberto Hernandez. It was the first pinch-hit grand slam for Boston since Kevin Millar hit one at Milwaukee on June 7, 2003.

Dustin Pedroia opened the 10th with a walk against Joel Peralta (2-7) and went to second on Shane Victorino’s bunt. After David Ortiz was intentionally walked, Hernandez replaced Peralta and walked Mike Napoli on four pitches before Carp connected for his ninth homer.
