Coco Crisp's diving grab in the seventh saved two runs, setting up Boston's two-run comeback in the eighth. J.D. Drew singled in the tying run, and Mike Lowell followed with the go-ahead RBI. Jason Varitek put the Sox up early with his three-run homer in the fourth.
Down three runs in the sixth, Texas struck for four, including Mark Teixeira's mammoth homer, the fourth longest in Rangers Ballpark history. But Boston's Coco Crisp thwarted the Rangers with a diving catch in the seventh, and the Sox scored two in the eighth.
