In his first at-bat of the year, Jake Elmore homered off Edward Mujica in the Rays' 7-5 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Elmore, called up earlier in the day, had entered the game as a pinch-runner. The Rays already had a 6-5 lead when Elmore took Mujica deep in the seventh, but the insurance run was nice. It was Elmore's third homer in 200 major league at-bats. He'll serve as a utilityman until the Rays' infield gets healthier.
