Rangers’ catcher Bengie Molina hit a grand slam in the fifth inning, and a triple in the eighth inning to hit for the cycle as Texas topped the Red Sox 8-4 at Fenway Park Friday night.
Felix Doubront started in place of the injured Clay Buchholz and took the loss to drop to 1-2. Adrian Beltre homered and Kevin Youkilis went 3-for-4 for Boston.
The Red Sox will send John Lackey to the mound Saturday night against Texas. The Rangers will counter with new acquisition Cliff Lee.
