G15: Red Sox 8, Rangers 7 (12)

Rangers - 130 000 300 000 - 7  7  0
Red Sox - 014 110 000 001 - 8 9 1
Kevin Youkilis's two-out double off the wall in left-center scored Marco Scutaro with the winning run in the 12th inning. The hit - Yook's second double of the night - came after Texas walked Dustin Pedroia intentionally.

Three Dong Night: Mike Lowell hit a solo shot in the second, J.D. Drew wrapped a grand slam around the Pesky pole in the third, and Darnell McDonald launched one to dead center in the fourth. (Lowell's single drove in Youkilis in the fifth.)

Beckett had a rough night (7-6-7-5-4, 115; 6 ER), but in the middle of his outing retired 12 of 14 batters. After he departed, the pen (5-1-0-0-6) was superb.

Daniel Bard threw two perfect inning (K, 1-3, K; PF2, F9, K), Jonathan Papelbon was sharp in the 10th (needing only five pitches) and 11th (1B, 643DP, 5-3; K, 6-3, 5-3) and Hideki Okajima cruised through the 12th (K, K, 4-3).
