BOSTON -- Matt Harrison allowed two runs in seven innings, and Josh Hamilton had a bases-loaded triple in a seven-run sixth as the Texas Rangers roared past Boston 11-4 Sunday to win the three-game series at Fenway Park.
Adrian Beltre collected the 2,000th hit of his career -- a line-drive single to right field -- during the rally. He is the 266th player in major-league history to reach the 2,000-hit plateau.
Hamilton's triple, the Rangers' third of the game, came with the Rangers up 6-0. The biggest at-bat of the rally belonged to Mitch Moreland, who with no outs and the bases loaded snapped an 0-for-20 skid with a single to right field in a lefty-on-lefty matchup against reliever Felix Doubront.
David Murphy and Ian Kinsler had tripled in the second and third to help stake the Rangers to a 2-0 lead.
Never miss a local story.
Harrison kept Boston at bay through six scoreless innings, pitching out of trouble in four of them. The Red Sox finally broke through in the seventh, when they were down 9-0. Marco Scutaro had a two-run single before Harrison rebounded to close out the inning.
Boston scored twice quickly in the eighth against newcomer Mike Gonzalez, but Mike Napoli and Kinsler countered with solo homers in the ninth.
