The Red Sox offense came up empty Monday night.
On Tuesday, their cup overflowed.
Boston jumped to an early six-run lead on its way to an 11-5 win over the Rangers in scorching hot Arlington, Texas.
The Sox never gave Rangers starter Colby Lewis a chance, plating two runs apiece in the first, second and third and one in the fourth. John Lackey, meanwhile, pitched a steady 6 2/3 innings, surrendering four runs on seven hits.
Adrian Gonzalez did the bulk of the damage for Boston, homering in the first and fourth. He went 3-for-4 with three runs, three RBIs and a walk.
Jed Lowrie, Ryan Lavarnway and Jarrod Saltalamacchia also collected multiple hits for the Sox. Marco Scutaro had three RBIs.
