Rangers Vs. Red Sox: Late Runs Help Texas Earn 6-3 Victory

The Rangers got back on the winning side of things thanks to some late runs on Tuesday night. Texas scored all six runs after the fifth inning in a 6-3 win over the Red Sox in Boston.

The game was scoreless into the sixth, with RBI-singles from Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton gave Texas a 2-0 lead. The Rangers scored two more in the seventh, but the Red Sox responded with a three-run homer from Will Middlebrooks in the bottom frame to cut the lead to 4-3. The Rangers tacked on another run in the eighth and ninth innings and held on for the win.

Ryan Dempster allowed three unearned runs in 6 2/3 innings in the start and picked up his first win with Texas. Joe Nathan pitched a scoreless ninth for the save. Hamilton and Nelson Cruz each went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
