BOSTON (AP) - Mitch Moreland hit a solo homer and drove in two runs, Wandy Rodriguez pitched 6 2-3 solid innings and the Texas Rangers beat the Red Sox and their listless offense 3-1 on Thursday night.

Moreland added two singles for the Rangers, who won for the third time in four games to capture the series after losing the opener.

Rodriguez (2-2) allowed one run and four hits, struck out five and walked two after not getting out of the fifth inning in his previous start.

Shawn Tolleson got three outs for the save after earning the first of his career on Wednesday.

Clay Buchholz (2-5) gave up three runs - two earned - and five hits in 7 2-3 innings.

David Ortiz drove Boston's run, tying Fred McGriff for 43rd all time with his 1,550th RBI. Boston hasn't scored more than four runs in nine straight games.
