A's were 0-for-25 with runners in scoring position before that Burns hit. It didn't score a run, but... baby steps.

Delightful debut for Eduardo Rodriguez

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
