#RedSox Game Summary (July 5) You Can’t Always Get What You Want

#RedSox Game Summary (July 5) You can’t always get what you want. (Apologies to the Rolling Stones) Texas Rangers starter Andrew Cashner had a terrific game, with a no-hitter through 5 innings, and although he gave up a 2 run dinger to Xander Bogaerts (be sure to get your vote in for him for the All Star Game) in the 6th, he ended up with the win. Boston starter Doug Fister struggled in this one. In the 2nd, a double by our old friend Adrain Beltre (he-whose-head-must-not-be-touched), followed by a Rougned Odor homer gave the Rangers an early 2-0 lead. In the 3rd, that lead was extended by a Carlos Gomez solo homer. In the 4th, two walks and an error resulted in 3 more runs on a sac fly and a single for Texas. In the 5th, a two successive HPBs by Robby Scott, followed by a Jurickson Profar double resulted in 2 more runs, putting this game out of reach. The Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo also doubled in the game. So, the Red Sox winning streak is snapped at 6. Texas beat Boston, 8-2, at Globe Life Park. Record: 49-36. Game 85/77.
