David Ortiz and Mike Napoli homered in a 6-2 win over the Tampa bay Rays on Monday afternoon in Fort Myers, Fla.

Jon Lester made his first start of the spring, throwing three innings of one-hit ball, walking one and striking out four.

Napoli homered off former Sox lefty Erik Bedard, who is trying out for a spot in the Rays' rotation.

Will Middlebrooks added two RBIs for the Red Sox. Shane Victorino, making his spring debut in right field, was hit by a pitch and scored a run in three innings.

Grady Sizemore went 1-for-3 for Boston. Sox outfielder Corey Brown, who replaced Sizemore in center, hit a solo homer.

Rays third baseman Evan Longoria homered in the fourth off lefty Chris Capuano, who went three innings and allowed one run for Boston.
