Making his first start of the season, Julian Tavarez yieled four runs on six hits in an 87-pitch outing over four innings. Julio Lugo, J.D. Drew and Jason Varitek each picked up RBIs, but the Sox's bullpen couldn't keep the Rangers' bats in check.
Sammy Sosa moved to within 11 home runs of the 600-plateau with a two-run tater in the Rangers' rout of the Red Sox on Saturday. It was Sosa's first long ball since 2005, and he has now gone deep in 43 different big-league ballparks in his career.
