Wakefield stifles Rangers
Red Sox 2, Rangers 1
David Ortiz draws a tag, which allows the game-winner to score in the fifth. (Charles Krupa/AP)
 Youkilis scores on fielder's choice
Tim Wakefield allowed seven hits and four walks, but held Texas to just one run in 6 2/3 frames. Boston produced just enough to back Wakefield, with Wily Mo Pena's RBI single in the fourth and Manny Ramirez's grounder in the fifth accounting for its lone runs.
