Rick Porcello gave up a two-out, two-RBI double to Hunter Pence in the top of the first inning and settled down after that, retiring fifteen in a row.
He went 6.2 innings scattering five hits and striking out six while not issuing a walk.
Rafael Devers delivered an RBI single in the bottom of the first to cut the Texas lead in half and Boston tied the game in the third on a run-scoring triple by Andrew Benintendi (pictured) who had three hits.
The Red Sox took a 3-2 lead in the fifth when Benintendi drove in Michael Chavis with a double.
No Red Sox game would be complete these days without a blown save, something Brandon Workman accomplished in the eighth when he allowed an unearned run on a sacrifice fly.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
