The Red Sox beat the Rangers in their series two to one, which gave the Red Sox their fifth win in six games.
Game 1: Red Sox lose 6-2
The Red Sox got off to a rough start to the series, losing 6-2 in their first game.
This is honestly due to the fact that the starting rotation for the Sox is in shambles. Two of the starters, Chris Sale and Garrett Whitlock are injured. James Paxton, the AL Pitcher of the Month in June, was away on paternity leave. This left only Brayan Bello, who was scheduled to pitch the day after.
Due to this, the Sox pitched a reliever game and were not able to keep up with the Rangers.
Game 2: Red Sox win 4-2
The Red Sox managed to get a win with their only starter Bello on the mound, 4-2.
Bello went seven innings, holding the Rangers scoreless for five innings before giving up two runs in the sixth.
The Red Sox offense was mostly in part due to Justin Turner, who had two RBI this game, allowing for the two-run lead which carried the Sox to victory.
Red Sox win 10-6
The tiebreaker of the series was the most exciting game as well. it was a back-and-forth game until the seventh inning, where the Sox exploded for six runs, leading the Rangers by six going into the eighth.
In their scoring run, there were no home runs. It was just hit after hit from most of their lineup, from the likes of Adam Duvall, Masataka Yoshida, Justin Turner, Kike Hernandez, Rafael Devers, Christian Arroyo and Connor Wong.
The Red Sox will look to continue their hot streak and a position for a wild card spot on July 7 when they play the Oakland Athletics at Fenway.
