The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Red Sox Win Series Opener Against Scorching Rangers

Red Sox Win Series Opener Against Scorching Rangers

Red Sox Defeat Rangers in Series Opener
Publish Date: 05/24/2017
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

The Boston Red Sox opened up a six game home stand Tuesday night with the first game of a three game series against the scorching hot Texas Rangers, who had only lost 1 game in their previous 12, and beat them by the score of 11-6.

Rick Porcello continued his uneven start to the season, but improved his record to 3-5, allowing 5 runs (4 earned) in 6.2 innings, giving up 11 hits in the process.

Shortstop Xander Bogaerts led the Red Sox offense with 3 hits and 3 RBI.

โ€œThatโ€™s the kind of offense we have. The weatherโ€™s heating up and a lot of guys are putting good swings on the ball,” Bogaerts said. “It was a good win today. A lot of guys contributed.โ€

Rangers starting pitcher, Andrew Cashner, who had been rolling to start the season, gave up 5 earned runs in 5 innings pitched, walking 4 men in the process.

โ€œI thought the walks in certain spots definitely hurt me. I think it could have been a different game had some things gone differently,โ€ Cashner said

It was a good win for a team that needs to find its’ stride, as they stand 3.5 games behind the rival New York Yankees for the AL East crown. The Red Sox improved to 23-21 on the season.

After the day off Monday for the Red Sox, manager John Farrell had called for a team meeting to ensure the playersย in the clubhouse that this season is young, and they are not in trouble, especially if they can play like they did yesterday offensively.

โ€œIt was also to re-emphasize the things that are going well here and not just to pick out all that is wrong here,” Farrell said. “There are a number of things going right and a number of those things were on display here tonight.โ€

Rangers designated hitter, Shin-Soo Choo, led the Rangers offense with 2 hits and 2 RBI, but the pitching ultimately doomed the Rangers, allowing a total of 12 hits.

The Red Sox will host the Rangers for the second game of the series Wednesday night at 7:10 PM. The Red Sox will send out Chris Sale (4-2, 2.19), while the Rangers counter with Martin Perez (2-5, 3.71).
