BOSTON, June 5 (UPI) -- Alexi Ogando came off the disabled list to cool off Boston Wednesday and help Texas edge the Red Sox 3-2.
One night after allowing Boston 17 runs on 19 hits, the Rangers ended the Red Sox' winning streak at three games.
Ogando had been on the DL since May 16 with soreness in the bicep of his throwing arm, but he struck out six Red Sox over 5 2/3 innings while limiting them to a run on three hits.
Neal Cotts (1-0) relieved Ogando in the sixth and retired the only batter he faced, thus picking up his first major league victory in seven years. That win, one of 11 in his career, came while he was with the Chicago White Sox.
