Bogie And The Chicken Propel Red Sox Over Texas, 11-6

Xander Bogaerts had three hits and three RBIs, while Dustin Pedroia nailed a key two-run double in Boston's 11-6 win over the Rangers. The Red Sox broke open a tight game with three runs in the fifth and four in the sixth to take command for Rick Porcello (who was just "OK") in his third win. Mitch Moreland also had two hits and two RBIs in the satisfying win. The Boston bullpen worked 2.1 innings—giving up one run on two hits (one of which was Joey Gallo's 14th HR). Both The Evil Ones and the Yankees (see what we did there?) lost, so The Carmine Hose (despite a lousy start to the season) sit just 3.5 games out of first place in the AL East. Go figure.
