Red Sox use big seventh inning to top Rangers (0:45)

Red Sox 9, Rangers 4: Record? The only record that matters to Chris Sale is the Red Sox's win-loss record, and after a seven-run seventh-inning rally Wednesday night, they won their third game in a row for first time since a four-game run April 15-18. Sale's run of consecutive starts with at least 10 strikeouts ended at eight, tying a record he already shared with Pedro Martinez. He fanned six batters, a season-low, and gave up four runs (three earned) in 7.1 innings.
