ST PETERSBURG, FLORIDA - AUGUST 21: Nelson Cruz #23 of the Tampa Bay Rays scores after being batted in by Wander Franco #5 in the first inning against the Chicago White Sox at Tropicana Field on August 21, 2021 in St Petersburg, Florida.

It was a good night to be Nelson Cruz.

According to AP News, Cruz homered twice, and at 41-years-old, became the oldest player in major league history to hit 30 home runs in a season, powering the Tampa Bay Rays past the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night 12-7.

Mike Zunino also homered twice and Jordan Luplow connected for the team with the best record in the American League and the highest-scoring club in the majors.

This was the Rays’ seventh straight road game victory and increased their AL East lead to 9 1/2 games over New York.
