Steven Wright's (pictured) magical 2016 season hit a speed bump in Texas on Saturday night as the Rangers roughed him up for eight runs (three earned) on sevens hits and two walks in 4.2 innings as the Red Sox fell 10-3.

Boston actually had a brief 1-0 lead in the top of the second on Hanley Ramirez's eighth home run of the year and the third in his last four games.

The Rangers scored three in the fourth and five in the fifth with "help" from errors by Xander Bogaerts and Ramirez, and a wild pitch by Robbie Ross Jr.

Ramirez and Jackie Bradley Jr. each had two hits for Boston who now turn to Clay Buchholz on Sunday in the hope of getting a series win.
