The Texas Rangers capitalized on a 5-run 3rd inning in routing the Red Sox 10 - 7 at Fenway Park on Tuesday night. No-hit through the first 2 innings by Felix Doubront, the Rangers torched him for 5 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks in 2.2 innings.

The Red Sox had 14 hits, one more actually than the Rangers, but grounded into a double play in each of the first 5 innings, killing any chance of building any kind of rally early in the game.

Mike Napoli, Grady Sizemore and A.J. Pierzynski each had 3 hits; Jackie Bradley Jr. had 2 hits and drove in a pair of runs with a Wall Ball double in the bottom of the 7th inning. David Ortiz had a 2-RBI double in the bottom of the 9th.
