BOSTON (AP) - Manny Ramirez hit a two-run homer after slumping
slugging partner David Ortiz tied it with an RBI single in the
eighth inning, lifting the Boston Red Sox to a 5-3 win over the
Texas Rangers on Saturday night.
With the crowd still buzzing after the Bruins' 5-4 win over
Montreal in the Game 6 of the Stanley Cup playoffs was posted on
the scoreboards, Dustin Pedroia doubled off the Green Monster
against Joaquin Benoit (1-1) with one out in the eighth.
Ortiz followed with a hard single that bounced off the glove of
diving second baseman Ian Kinsler and into short right field,
scoring Pedroia. Ramirez then hit an 0-1 pitch over the Monster
seats for his sixth of the season.
