Red Sox 6, Rangers 0, End 6: Miller Escapes Danger In Sixth

Despite putting their first two batters of the inning on base, the Rangers still failed to score in the sixth, as a strike 'em out, throw 'em out double play kept them stuck on a goose egg through six.

With Feldman recording another 1-2-3 inning to start the frame, the Rangers looked like they might finally break through and perhaps start to claw their way back into things. A throwing error by Marco Scutaro allowed Omar Quintanilla to reach to start the frame, and Miller allowed his second walk of the night against Ian Kinsler, putting two men on with no outs. 

Elvis Andrus couldn't get the job done, but his ground ball was not hard hit enough to let the Sox turn two, so with a runner now on third all the Rangers needed to get on the board was a productive out. And, with Josh Hamilton on the mound...they didn't get it. For the third time on the night, Miller struck out Hamilton, and ended up getting even more out of it. With Andrus taking off at first, Saltalamacchia through down and got the ball there so early that the Texas shortstop tried to reverse direction and get caught in the rundown. Instead, a quick tag on the back ended the frame--and the threat--with no damage done.
