ARLINGTON, Texas -- Adrian Beltre had a three-run double among his four hits, Derek Holland pitched eight scoreless innings for his fifth consecutive victory over Boston and the Texas Rangers beat the Red Sox 7-0 Friday night.

While Holland (2-2) had a season-high nine strikeouts and held Boston to six singles, the Rangers had a season-high 18 hits.

Red Sox starter Felix Doubront (3-1) allowed a career-worst 12 hits in 3 2-3 innings.
