Rangers blow 5-run lead, lose to Red Sox

BOSTON (AP) - Darnell McDonald, called up from the minors earlier in the day, hit a pinch-hit two-run homer in the eighth inning to tie the game and won it with an RBI single in the ninth to lift the struggling Boston Red Sox to a 7-6 comeback win over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.

The Red Sox snapped a five-game losing streak despite allowing the Rangers to steal a club record nine bases. Texas has dropped five straight.

Nelson Cruz and Elvis Andrus each had three of Texas' club record nine stolen bases as the Rangers opened a 6-1 lead after five innings. The Rangers swiped all nine against knuckleballer Tim Wakefield
and catcher Victor Martinez.

Jonathan Papelbon (1-1) pitched a hitless ninth for the win.
