Rookie Jackie Bradley Jr. chipped in with his first major league home run -- a two-run clout that triggered a six-run second inning -- and finished with three RBI as the Red Sox notched a fourth win in five games.

Ryan Dempster (3-6) collected his first victory since May 2 -- a span of five starts -- holding the Rangers to three runs on five hits over seven innings for Boston, which took the opener of a three-game series pitting American League division leaders.

The Rangers' Justin Grimm (5-4) was torched for eight runs on seven hits in 1 2/3 innings.

Jeff Baker, Mitch Moreland and Nelson Cruz each hit home runs and A.J. Pierzynski added three hits for Texas.
