Red Sox 0, Rangers 0, End 1: Sox Build Wilson's Pitch Count Up Early

The Red Sox managed to build up C.J. Wilson's pitch count some with a little help from the small zone of home plate umpire Paul Nauert. Marco Scutaro worked a long at bat to start the inning before flying out, and after a two-out single from Adrian Gonzalez, Dustin Pedroia drew a five pitch walk to extend the inning before Jed Lowrie grounded out weakly to third.

After Wilson shared some words with the ump while heading back to the dugout, the Rangers stepped up to bat. Erik Bedard did not have nearly so much difficulty getting out of the inning, using just 14 pitches to retire the Rangers in order.

The Sox will have the bottom of the order up in the second, starting with Ryan Lavarnway.
