The Rangers attack consisted of seven hits and four free passes with Rougned Odor going 2-3 with a homer and three runs while Joey Gallo ripped a two run double.
Veteran right hander Bartolo Colon has been tabbed by Texas to start on Wednesday. Colon absorbed a 3-1 loss at Detroit last time out with all three runs scoring over eight frames.
The Boston Red Sox continue to win after the offense helped the team pull away for another win versus Texas on Tuesday. Boston starter Hector Velasquez gave up a run in three frames while Jalen Beeks gave up three runs over 2.1 innings before four relievers put up zeros.
The Red Sox pounded out 12 hits and walked five times with Xander Bogaerts, Andrew Benntendi, Mitch Moreland and Jackie Bradley Jr. each driving in a pair of runs.
The Red Sox send left hander Chris Sale to the hill to oppose the Rangers Wednesday. Sale defeated Kansas City 10-5 last time out with a run allowed in six frames for his third straight win.
Texas are 7-2 in their last 9 Wednesday games and are 2-6 in their last 8 overall and are 2-6 in their last 8 games on grass. Under is 9-2-1 in Boston last 12 home games and Boston are 16-5 in their last 21 home games and Boston are 23-8 in their last 31 Wednesday games.
