St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Jose Molina and Kelly Johnson stroked back-to-back homers as part of a five-run second inning in the Tampa Bay Rays' 8-3 win against the Chicago White Sox Friday in the opener of a three-game series at Tropicana Field.

The early outburst provided more than enough run support for Rays right-hander Jeremy Hellickson (8-3), who held the White Sox to one run on six hits while fanning nine over seven solid innings to notch his fourth straight victory.

Wil Myers registered two RBI, while Desmond Jennings added three hits and two runs scored for the Rays, who have won six of their last seven games.

Chicago starter Dylan Axelrod (3-5) failed to make it out of the second inning after being tagged for five runs on nine hits in just 1 2/3 frames to take the loss.

Josh Phegley plated a pair of runs for the White Sox, who have lost seven of their last nine games.
