However, the Red Sox came right back in the bottom of the fifth-- starting on a leadoff triple by Carl Crawford. Crawford scored on a double by Adrian Gonzalez, who eventually scored on a passed ball to cut it to 6-5. That was when things got rough for the Red Sox-- starting on a leadoff single in the sixth. That would be followed up by a two-run homer for Geovany Soto, crushed to left to make it 8-5. The Rangers tacked on another run in the seventh when Nelson Cruz went deep over the monster. However, that seventh was when things turned for the Red Sox-- starting with a leadoff single for Dustin Pedroia. Pedroia scored on a double by Adrian Gonzalez, who was followed with a walk to put men at first and second. Will Middlebrooks came up and promptly tied the game with a three-run homer to make it 9-9. Unfortunately, the Rangers got the go-ahead run in the ninth on a sacrifice fly by Adrian Beltre and won 10-9.
