Red Sox 5, Rangers 0, End 2: Sox Tack On Another Run, Josh Beckett Works Quick Inning

The Red Sox have tacked on another run in the second inning, and now hold a 5-0 lead with Josh Beckett picking up three quick outs behind them.

The run came around to score thanks to a single and stolen base from Jacoby Ellsbury, and an RBI base knock from Dustin Pedroia with a walk to Adrian Gonzalez in between. That makes the three MVP candidates a combined 5-for-5 with a walk on the night; so in other words, just another typical day at the ballpark.

Josh Beckett, meanwhile, managed to bring his pitch count down some with a few quick outs. Instead of picking up strikeouts like in the bottom of the first, Beckett induced a couple of easy flies and a groundout to retire the side on just 13 pitches, leaving him at 40 through the first two frames. Still high, but not as high as it could be.
