Red Sox on the board
Mookie Betts drove in the first run with a single that brought Blake Swihart around to score. The Rangers got the next batter, Pablo Sandoval, to ground into an inning-ending double play. Boston is up 1-0 in the fifth. Follow live
Bogaerts exits early
Xander Bogaerts has left the Red Sox game. He was hit by a pitch on the hand in the second inning, but stayed in until the fourth. It's unclear if that's the reason he left, but he was clearly in pain after being hit. Score is tied at 0 in the fifth. Follow live
Heathcott scratched from Yanks' lineup
Rookie centerfielder Slade Heathcott was a late scratch from tonight's lineup due to a sore right quad. Heathcott is hitting .353 with a home run and three RBIs in the six games since being called up from Triple-A.

Josh Hamilton doubles on a first-pitch fastball for a double in his return to Texas. Big ovation, big smile from Hamilton.
