Red Sox: Offense comes to play in Texas

Boston's bats rebounded from Monday's shutout with a strong showing.

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.
