BOSTON (AP) - Manny Delcarmen struck out Sammy Sosa with the
bases loaded in the seventh inning to help the Boston Red Sox earn
a 2-to-1 victory over the Texas Rangers.
Tim Wakefield evened his mark at 8-and-8. He gave up one run and
seven hits, striking out four and walking four. Delcarmen relieved
him with two on and two out in the seventh, then walked the bases
full before fanning Sosa to end the threat. Jonathan Papelbon
closed out the Rangers in the ninth for his 19th save.
The Red Sox snap a three-game losing streak and improved to .500
for June, their worst month this season.
