BOSTON (AP) - Kevin Youkilis doubled in the tying run in the ninth inning then drove in the winner with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 11th and the Boston Red Sox overcame a strong performance by Cliff Lee and beat the Texas Rangers 3-2 Saturday night.
Marco Scutaro led off the 11th with a walk before Darnell McDonald bunted on a sacrifice attempt. Pitcher Alexi Ogando (3-1) fielded the ball and threw toward second, where it hit Scutaro and caromed into short left field. Scutaro went to third and McDonald took second. David Ortiz was walked intentionally, loading the bases with no outs.
Darren O'Day came in to face Youkilis, who lifted a fly ball to medium center field. Scutaro beat Josh Hamilton's throw without a slide.
Manny Delcarmen (3-2) pitched a perfect 11th after being activated from the disabled list earlier Saturday.
