Mookie Betts exits game after being hit by throw

BC-BBA-Red Sox-Rangers, 1st Ld-Writethru, 841 Kimbrel quickest to 300 saves as Red Sox rally 6-5 at TexasAP Photo ARL112, ARL114, ARL116, ARL113, ARL105, ARL106, ARL108, ARL115, ARL103, ARL102, ARL104, ARL101Eds: Red Sox 6, Rangers 5. Betts was trying to advance to second base on a ground ball in the first inning and appeared to have taken the hit on the right shoulder blade.

Probably being his first time he went out for a second inning, I believe he might have exhausted a little bit.

Benintendi cracked a triple off the wall in right center against Texas right-hander Keone Kela in the ninth and scored the winning run on a sacrifice fly by Hanley Ramirez.

"It's very impressive. The number in itself is impressive, but the number of years they were able to play the game and stay effective, and keep that role, that says a lot", Kimbrel said. The club has a day off on Monday before continuing their road trip in the Bronx against the Yankees. "I've been a part of a lot of great teams, a lot of save opportunities, a lot of chances". "It hit him in the ideal spot, so he wanted to keep going and I'm like, 'nah.' He had it throughout the arm, but he got the feeling back".

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Kimbrel was emotional after the game. The other four last season, all also at home.

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up three home runs and allowed five runs on four hits over six innings.

Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel missed much of spring training when he was back in Boston for his infant daughter's second heart surgery and her recovery.

"He's got like numbness, yeah", Cora said. It was Benintendi's fourth game with multiple extra-base hits this season, putting him halfway to his 2017 total of eight. "I think he's pretty practiced at swinging the bat".

It was his 75th save with the Red Sox, who acquired him in a trade from San Diego after the 2015 season.

Boston catcher Sandy Leon and outfielder J.D. Martinez led the Red Sox at the plate. Just like defense - you've got to take care of the ball.

"If you walk hitters in this lineup, they're going to make you pay, " Banister said.

The Red Sox (24-9) have maintained their hold on first place in the American League East standings despite a prolonged slump by centerfielder Jackie Bradley Jr.
