Sox sweep up in Texas
Red Sox 6, Rangers 5
Boston starter Julian Tavarez was nearly perfect until sixth-inning difficulty. (LM Otero/AP)
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.
