ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Mike Aviles blooped a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and the Boston RedSox beat the Texas Rangers 2-1 Tuesday night, ending a four-game losing streak.

Red Sox reliever Vicente Padilla (4-0) escaped a first-and-third jam in the eighth. He hit Adrian Beltre in the helmet with a pitch, leaving the Texas star with a bruise on his head.

Rangers closer Joe Nathan issued a pair of two-out walks in the ninth and Aviles singled just beyond the reach of shortstop Elvis Andrus.
