Andrus' 2-run double lifts Texas past Red Sox 3-2

Elvis Andrus hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the seventh inning after earlier ending a 1-for-18 slump and the Texas Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia doubled in a run for Boston in the eighth, but Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his 18th save in 19 chances.

Neal Cotts (1-0) got the win despite walking three of the four batters he faced. Craig Breslow (2-1) took the loss.

The victory gave the Rangers their best record through the first 58 games at 36-22 - their previous best was 35-23 three times in the 1990s. They also broke a four-game road losing streak.

Texas has the best record in the AL, while Boston is second at 36-24 after their three-game winning streak stopped.
