Red Sox - 000 100 001 - 2 6 2 Rangers - 000 001 000 - 1 5 0Mike Aviles lined a single over shortstop with two outs in the ninth inning, scoring Daniel Nava and snapping a 1-1 tie. (Aviles had ended the second inning with the bases loaded and had stranded a man at second in the fourth.)
Nava had started the rally with a two-out walk. Pinch-hitter Jarrod Saltalamacchia also walked, setting the stage for Aviles. The win ended Boston's four-game losing streak.
Buchholz (7-4-1-3-1, 105) turned in another strong outing. Vicente Padilla wiggled out of a first-and-third jam of his own making - a two-base throwing error on an ill-advised pickoff attempt - in the eighth. Alfredo Aceves set the Rangers down in the ninth (allowing only a two-out walk) on eight pitches for the save.
Boston scored in the fourth when Cody Ross walked and scored on Kelly Shoppach's two-out double to right that David Murphy misplayed.
