Sole Possesion

For the second straight night, the Red Sox offense put a beating on the Rangers pitching staff, piling up 13 runs in Wednesday's victory at Arlington. Carl Crawford knocked in 5 runs and powered out his 9th HR as the full complement of the Boston lineup (sans Youk) took sole possession of first place.

Josh Beckett finally got some run support and cruised to his 11th win. Gonzo and Ellsbury also went yard. Tonight, Andrew Miller will go for the series win, hoping to build off his impressive win in KC.
