RED SOX BEAT RANGERS WITH GREAT OFFENSIVE
Thu, 09 Aug 2012 02:30 AM EDT

The Red Sox gave Yu Darvish an inhospitable welcome in his 1st appearance at Fenway Park, as Boston beat the Texas Rangers 9-2 Monday night.

Dustin Pedroia had three of Boston’s 8 doubles, with Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury adding 2 apiece. Crawford knocked in 3 runs.

Darvish took the loss, falling to 11-8 with a 4.57 ERA. He went 6 2 / 3 innings, giving up 6 runs on 11 hits and 4 walks with 9 strikeouts and a wild pitch. He allowed 7 doubles, the 1st Rangers starter to do so in franchise history. He also threw a season-high 123 pitches.

Darvish allowed at least 6 runs for the 3rd straight start, and he has got a 7.76 ERA in his last 5 starts.

“I think overall, my pitches have been pretty good,” Darvish related. “But unfortunately, I’m giving up base hits on hits that weren’t hit too hard, maybe giving up extra base hits in a bit of the game when I shouldn’t. I believe it’s simply a combination of a large amount of different things that’s not going my way right now.”

The top 4 batters in the Boston lineup – Ellsbury, Crawford, Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez — went 11-for-18 with 8 doubles, 8 RBIs and 6 runs. It is the 1st time in team history the first 3 batters in the starting lineup each hit at least 2 doubles in the same game.

“They popped the ball round the ballpark pretty good,” recounted Texas manager Ron Washington. “Nothing you can do about it. Yu threw lots of strikes and when he put them in the strike sector, they did not miss them.”

Aaron Cook earned the win for Boston, improving to 3-5 with a 4.70 ERA. He went 7 innings, giving up one run on 6 hits and 3 walks with 2 strikeouts.

“He gave us 7 innings, and less hits than innings pitched,” Boston manager Bobby Valentine said.”

The Rangers scored 1st, getting a run in the 2nd inning. Nelson Cruz led off with a double, and he scored on David Murphy’s single to center. That was all Texas could do against Cook.

The Red Sox came back with two runs in the 3rd and 3 in 4th.

In the 3rd, Ellsbury led off with a double to left, and he returned home on Crawford’s double to right. Gonzalez’s one-out double to right scored Crawford. NFL spreads

With one out in the 4th, Ryan Kalish walked, went to 2nd on Mike Aviles’ single to center and scored on Ellsbury’s double. Crawford’s sacrifice fly scored Aviles, and Pedroia’s double to left scored Ellsbury.

The Sox added a run in the 7th. Pedroia led off with a double, and Gonzalez hit an RBI single.

With reliever Michael Kirkman on in the 8th for Texas, Ellsbury hit an one-out infield single ahead of Crawford’s RBI double off the wall.

After a walk to Pedroia, Gonzalez’s single to right scored Crawford, with Pedroia going to 3rd. Tanner Scheppers replaced Kirkman, and he gave up a sacrifice fly to Cody Ross, scoring Pedro Ciriaco, who pinch-ran for Pedroia.

Adrian Beltre completed the Rangers’ scoring, leading off the 9th with home run off Junichi Tazawa, who relieved Cook.
