Rangers rock Miller, Sox, 10-0

BOSTON Perhaps it was the fatigue caused by three marathon games against the Yankees. Whatever the reason, the Red Sox appeared drained, lethargic, and overmatched as they were walloped by the Rangers, 10-0, Friday night at Fenway Park.

While Rangers starter Derek Holland cruised to a win, holding the Sox to just one hit a Jacoby Ellsbury lead-off single over the first 3 23 innings, until Adrian Gonzalez singled, Red Sox starter Andrew Miller was taking a bruising.

Miller lasted just 1 13 innings, giving up six runs on five hits and four walks with one strikeout and a balk. Miller faced 13 batters, throwing 52 pitches. He left Michael Bowden with the unenviable job of coming into the game with one out and the bases loaded.

Although Bowden allowed a run, he went 2 23 innings, giving up just one run on two hits and a walk with five striekouts.

Holland went seven innings, giving up two hits and no walks, with six strikeouts. He improved to 13-5, with a 4.13 ERA.

The crowd of 38,083 was the 700th consecutive sellout at Fenway going back to May 15, 2003.
