Red Sox 1, Rangers 0, End 1: Adrian Gonzalez Homers Again

The Red Sox once again have an early lead over the Rangers thanks to the fourth homer from Adrian Gonzalez in three games.

Alexi Ogando got off to a strong start, striking out Ellsbury on six pitches, but a very hard hit fly ball from Jed Lowrie did not promise good things, though it did end up in Nelson Cruz’ glove. Sure enough, the very next pitch to Adrian Gonzalez was straight down the middle. Gonzalez took a big swing, and drilled it well out to center for a solo shot.

Andrew Miller did not have nearly so much trouble, recording three quick outs in the bottom half of the first, getting Josh Hamilton on a breaking ball that came back to catch the inside edge of the zone for strike three.
