The Boston Red Sox (36-23) and Texas Rangers (35-22) face off for game two of the three game set tonight at Fenway Park. The Sox are 18-12 at home and have won four of five at Fenway. Last night the Sox won a laugher scoring 17 runs, hitting four home runs including Jackie Bradley Jr’s first of his career. Four Red Sox players, Stephen Drew, Daniel Nava, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Mike Carp each had at least three hits off six Ranger pitchers including outfielder David Murphy who proved to be Texas’ best arm of the night.
John Lackey is on the hill for the Red Sox. Lackey is 3-5 with a 2.96 ERA on the year. Lackey pitched well, but lost his last start in Philadelphia giving up 6 hits, 3 runs in 5 innings. At Fenway Park this year Lackey is 2-3 with a 0.90 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched. Lackey has faced the Rangers 38 times in his career which is tied for the fourth most all-time. Only Jack Morris (41), Roger Clemens (40) and Mike Moore (3...

CRACKS A SMILE
Your browser does not support iframes. The Texas Rangers were getting beat by the Boston Red Sox so badly on Tuesday night, manager Ron Washington decided to spare his pitchers and let a position player hurl an inning during their 17-5 loss. That player was outfielder David Murphy, who turned out to have more success [...]
John Lackey may not have gotten the win Wednesday night, but the right-hander impressed his teammates and coaches with yet another quality start.
In six innings of work, Lackey allowed just one run — a home run by former teammate Adrian Beltre — on five hits and zero walks. Starts like this have been the norm for the veteran for nearly a month, as he’s allowed just four total...
Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz gave a maximum effort in pursuit of a Mike Carp home run. Cruz fell over the outfield wall into the Boston Red Sox bullpen. Cruz would have had the web gem of the season unfortunately he came up short and Carp circled the bases. The “Cruz Missile” will regroup and hope for a successful re-launch the next time someone dials long distance.

Then, in the seventh, the Carmine Hose pushed across a run with some hustle by Mike Napoli and a great take-out slide by David Ortiz. It was Ortiz who untied things for good in the ninth—clouting a three...

Jarrod Saltalamacchia teaches how to properly block the plate on a play at home.
After offense was easy to find last night, it disappeared again tonight. The Rangers bullpen was able to mostly shut down the Red Sox after Alexi Ogando went 5 2/3 innings, and all the Red Sox bullpen could do was try to keep Boston in the game.
Here are the four bases:
First Base: Walks hurt more than a sunburn. Sunburns sometimes are not to bad, and sometimes walks are not either...
One thing you can say about Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz is that he'll go beyond the call of duty to attempt to rob a home run.
During last night's game against the Boston Red Sox, Nelson attempted to rob a home run in the fifth inning hit by Boston's Mike Carp.
Watch as Nelson does his best to bring it back but ends up falling over the fence and into the...

The Texas Rangers have activated Alexi Ogando from the DL and he’s starting Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox. Ogando returns to a 3.08 ERA on the season. On May 4th, he spun 6 innings of one-run ball in a victory over the Red Sox so Ogando is probably worth rolling the dice on.

Nelson Cruz makes an attempt to rob Carp of a home run...
