(Newser) – Sean Casey's bases-loaded walk capped a four-run eighth inning and the Boston Red Sox pulled another late rally, beating the Texas Rangers 6-5. The Red Sox overcame a 5-0 deficit and won for the eighth time in nine games. Boston has taken the first three in a four-game series that concludes Monday with the annual 11:05 a.m. start on Patriots Day.

On Saturday night, Manny Ramirez homered during a three-run comeback in the eighth for a 5-3 victory. Ramirez was ejected early this time for arguing a called third strike. Ian Kinsler led off the game with a home run for Texas. Milton Bradley had a three-run homer off Tim Wakefield in the sixth, a shot that hit an advertising sign above the Monster seats in left field and made it 5-0.
