The win snapped a two game post-All-Star break losing streak.

John Lackey and Cliff Lee put on a pitchers duel for much of the game. Lackey pitched the first seven innings for Boston, allowing two runs. Lee pitched nine innings for the Rangers, but left with a no-decision after Youkilis tied the game.

Jon Lester (11-3) will start Sunday afternoon’s series finale against the Rangers C.J. Wilson (7-5).
