Thairo Estrada homered twice to help the visiting San Francisco Giants even the three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays with a 11–2 win on Saturday afternoon.

Richie Palacios had three hits for the Rays, who won the series opener 2–1 on Friday night.
Michael Conforto came up with two outs in the first and lined a changeup just inside the right-field line to score Wade from first for a 1–0 lead.
A hit-and-run single by Ben Rortvedt in the third inning put runners on the corners with no outs for Tampa Bay.
Webb got Yandy Diaz to ground into a 6–4–3 double play, scoring Jose Siri to tie it at 1, but that was all the Rays could muster against Webb.
Pepiot was one strike away from a 1-2-3 fourth inning, but Estrada pulled a fastball deep over the fence in left for a 2–1 lead.
Webb pitched around another leadoff single in the fourth before Pepiot got in trouble with two outs in the fifth.
Jung Hoo Lee doubled into the right-field corner before Wade hit a full-count pitch just over the yellow line in left for a two-run homer and a 4–1 lead.
Chris Devenski relieved Pepiot to start the sixth and walked the first three batters before Mike Yastrzemski grounded a two-run single through the drawn-in right side to make it 6–1.
Patrick Bailey followed with a ground-rule double to left to make it 7–1.
Soler hit a 446-foot solo shot to center off Devenski in the seventh to stretch the lead to 8–1.
