Gonzalez powers Red Sox past Rangers

Adrian Gonzalez homered twice, Jacoby Ellsbury made an immediate impact in his return to the lineup and the Boston Red Sox finally won a game in Texas with an 11-5 victory Tuesday night.
Ellsbury led off the game with a single, stole second base and
scored on the first homer by Gonzalez, putting the Red Sox ahead to
stay. The All-Star center fielder had missed three straight games
after getting hit in the back with a pitch.
Boston (78-50), which had lost its first four games at Rangers
Ballpark this season, moved within two percentage points of
first-place New York in the AL East. The Yankees lost to Oakland.
Texas native John Lackey (12-9) pitched 6 2-3 innings for his
seventh win in his last eight starts.
