Bradley’s shot to center bounced off the wall in one of the deepest parts of Fenway Park, scoring Pierzynski and Middlebrooks easily. Bradley went to third on a wild pitch and scored on Victorino’s ground-rule double.

The Red Sox scored three more on three hits off Oviedo. Boston scored five times in the inning and sent nine batters to the plate.

“That’s something that we normally don’t do,” Maddon said. “We’re normally pretty good at minimizing damage. We’ve got to do a better job of that.”

Bedard got his third no-decision in four starts. He allowed four hits, striking out four and walking three.

Middlebrooks walked to start the fifth and went to third when Bradley doubled to center. The Rays nearly got out of it when Dustin Pedroia lined out to third baseman Evan Longoria, who made a dive for the bag. Middlebrooks was diving in the other direction and barely beat the tag, then scored on Victorino’s fly to center to put Boston up 1-0.

The Rays got the run back in the sixth when Desmond Jennings doubled with one out and scored on a sacrifice fly by Longoria.

Ryan Hanigan’s single in the seventh drove in Myers, who led off the inning with a double that was just a few feet left of being a homer to center.
