ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - J.D. Drew and Mike Lowell hit R-B-I
singles in the eighth inning as the Boston Red Sox completed a
three-game sweep over the Texas Rangers with a 6-to-5 win. The Red
Sox have an eleven and a-half game lead over Baltimore in the A-L
East.
Kevin Youkilis singled to lead off the eighth. After Youkilis stole second base on Manny Ramirez's strikeout, Drew lined a single to right to tie it at 4. Lowell then drove in the go-ahead run. Dustin Pedroia added his second homer of the year in
the ninth.
Jason Varitek also homered for Boston.
Texas, with the worst record in the American League, has lost
five straight and ten of 13.
