BOSTON (AP) - Robinson Chirinos started a five-run third inning with his first homer of the season and the Texas Rangers won 10-7 as the Boston Red Sox hit into five double plays Tuesday night.
The Red Sox scored three runs in the ninth against Joakim Soria on an RBI single by Jonny Gomes and a two-run double by David Ortiz, but Mike Napoli struck out to end the game.
Boston's five double plays were one fewer than the American League record for a nine-inning game shared by eight teams. The major league mark of seven was set by the San Francisco Giants in 1969.
All of them came against Martin Perez (1-0).
Texas won for the second time in five games as every starter reached base by the fourth inning. Boston lost its fourth game in the last five.
Chirinos' second career homer broke a scoreless tie and began an inning in which the Rangers batted around against Felix Doubront (1-0).
ORIOLES 14, YANKEES 5
NEW YORK (AP) - Delmon Young, Adam Jones and Matt Wieters homered as the Baltimore Orioles teed off for 20 hits, battering the New York Yankees 14-5 Tuesday.
Young and Wieters each drove in three runs, and Jones delivered one of the Orioles' four doubles at a half-empty Yankee Stadium.
Everyone in Baltimore's starting lineup got a hit and scored a run. The Orioles posted their second-highest hit total in the Bronx, eclipsed only by a 22-hit outburst in 1986.
Wei-Yin Chen (1-1) weathered five innings for the win, giving up four runs and nine hits.
Ivan Nova (1-1) was tagged for seven runs and 10 hits in 3 2-3 innings.
