"Really nice pitching by Wandy tonight," Rangers ma
Garrett Richards' last outing at Fenway Park cut his season short, along with his bid for the Cy Young Award.

BOSTON (AP) As much as Yovani Gallardo struggled with his control early, two pitches he threw near the end of his five innings were the most costly to the Texas Rangers.

BOSTON (AP) Mike Napoli found a flaw in his swing on the cross-country flight after his difficult road trip. Then he sent a liner soaring into the left-field seats.

SEATTLE (AP) The Red Sox could not solve James Paxton, leaving Boston with a four-game split against the Seattle Mariners. Paxton stretched his scoreless streak to a career-best 20 innings in a 5-0 win Sunday as Boston finished a 5-5 trip. "We had some good at-bats," Dustin Pedroia said. "We hit the ball hard. We just didn't get hits or d
