Texas starter Andrew Cashner no-hit the Red Sox until Xander Bogaerts' (pictured) two-out, two-run homer in the top of the sixth inning.

Fister was plagued by control issues, walking three batters in his short outing. He also had a throwing error that led to a pair of unearned runs in the fourth.

Boston was ultimately held to just three hits - Mitch Moreland and Jackie Bradley Jr. each singled.

A silver lining? Coming out of the bullpen, Fernando Abad, Heath Hembree and Matt Barnes threw a combined three shutout innings.
