G98: Red Sox 2, Rangers 1

Red Sox - 000 100 001 - 2  6  2
Rangers - 000 001 000 - 1  5  0
Mike Aviles lined a single over shortstop with two outs in the ninth inning, scoring Daniel Nava and snapping a 1-1 tie. (Aviles had ended the second inning with the bases loaded and had stranded a man at second in the fourth.)

Nava had started the rally with a two-out walk. Pinch-hitter Jarrod Saltalamacchia also walked, setting the stage for Aviles. The win ended Boston's four-game losing streak.

Buchholz (7-4-1-3-1, 105) turned in another strong outing. Vicente Padilla wiggled out of a first-and-third jam of his own making - a two-base throwing error on an ill-advised pickoff attempt - in the eighth. Alfredo Aceves set the Rangers down in the ninth (allowing only a two-out walk) on eight pitches for the save.

Boston scored in the fourth when Cody Ross walked and scored on Kelly Shoppach's two-out double to right that David Murphy misplayed.

On the postgame Wake said the Padilla error was something he thought Agon told him to do.... Talking with the media after the game Agon said it was a play he called

The funny part about it is when Wake said it Eck was besides himself said no way Agon would call that....
