Red Sox-Rangers Preview

(AP) -- Josh Hamilton found his stroke in his Texas homecoming, but it wasn't nearly enough to punctuate the occasion with a victory.

The next preferable step would be beginning to put an end to the Rangers' home struggles Friday night as they play the second of a four-game set with the Boston Red Sox.

Boston (22-26) won the series opener 5-1 Thursday behind three-hit efforts by Dustin Pedroia and Mookie Betts and a home run from Hanley Ramirez to end a three-game losing streak. Pedroia is batting .424 on an eight-game hitting streak.
