After exploding for 17 runs on 19 hits yesterday, Boston was held to just five hits by Alexi Ogando in a 3-2 Texas victory. Elvis Andrus untied the game in the seventh with a two-run double off Koji Uehara. Dustin Pedroia homered to tie the game at one in the sixth, but the Red Sox could only muster one more run and fall to 36-24 on the season—just a game and a half over the Evil Ones. John Lackey pitched well again, going six solid innings, giving up just one run on five hits. He struck out five and walked none to lower his ERA to 2.79.
