Klein wins 1st major league start, Rangers top Red Sox 2-1

BOSTON (AP) - Phil Klein allowed one run in his first major league start, Robinson Chirinos hit a solo homer and the Texas Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 2-1 on Wednesday night.

The Rangers took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on a sacrifice fly by Elvis Andrus after singles by Adrian Beltre and Mitch Moreland. They made it 2-0 in the third when Chirinos hit his fourth homer of the season.

Klein, called up Wednesday from Triple-A Round Rock, allowed four hits through four scoreless innings before giving up a leadoff homer to Xander Bogaerts, his second of the year, in the fifth.

Texas won for only the second time in six games and split the first two games of the three-game series.

Klein (1-0), who has 23 relief appearances in his career, left with runners at first and second and one out in the sixth.
