It's getaway day for the Rangers, as they take on the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park in the final game of the season series between the two teams. Once again, Mike Napoli is out of the lineup with soreness in his left quad, reports Bill Humphrey of ESPNBoston.com.

"Just with catching Soto yesterday, and then the turnaround today I wanted to get Soto another day, and then we have the off day," manager Ron Washington said. "So that gives Nap 3 days for that to settle down, that's all. So it worked out perfectly."

Washington said it wasn't any worse, just something that is nagging.
