    With the win last night and another Yankees defeat to the Orioles the Red Sox have extended their lead to 3 and a half games in the AL east.

    Matt Barnes got the win with one inning of relief, striking out the side in the seventh. He was the fourth of five relievers the Red Sox rode to another victory after getting three solid innings from Hector Velazquez

    Texas also ran into some tough defense, including a diving grab by Bradley on a sinking line drive and a catch by Mookie Betts at the right-field wall to rob Nomar Mazara of a home run.
