BOSTON (AP) - C.J. Wilson struck out a career-high 10 and the Texas Rangers capitalized on Boston's throwing problems to beat the Red Sox 4-2 on Sunday.
The Rangers scored in the fourth when third baseman Adrian Beltre couldn't handle catcher Dusty Brown's throw as Nelson Cruz headed for the base. They got another run in the fifth when Julio Borbon stole home after Brown threw to second where Andrus was trying to steal.
Meanwhile, the hitting problems of the injury-depleted Red Sox lineup intensified as they lost for the eighth time in 11 games. Dustin Pedroia, Victor Martinez, Jacoby Ellsbury and Jason Varitek are on the disabled list.
They managed just five hits. In losing three of the four games in the series, Boston had just 11 runs on 25 hits. Kevin Youkilis had seven of them.
