Oct. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Jonny Gomes and Jarrod Saltalamacchia had two-run doubles as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 12-2 in the opener of their best-of-five American League division series.

Jon Lester allowed two runs on three hits in 7 2/3 innings for the host Red Sox at Fenway Park. Game 2 in the series is set for tomorrow, also in Boston.

In the National League, rookie Gerrit Cole allowed two hits in six innings while Pedro Alvarez and Starling Marte hit home runs for Pittsburgh as the Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 to even their playoff series at one game apiece.

Game 3 in the Pirates-Cardinals series is set for Oct. 6 in Pittsburgh.
