Aviles, Buchholz key Sox win over Texas
By: WEEI

A two-out RBI single from Mike Aviles in the ninth inning lifted the Red Sox to a 2-1 win over the Rangers Tuesday night in Arlington, Texas. Clay Buchholz tossed seven innings of four-hit ball for the Red Sox, who snapped a four-game skid. Will Middlebrooks had a pair of hits, Vicente Padilla (4-0) got the win in relief, and Alfredo Aceves tossed a scoreless ninth for his 21st save of the season.

The Red Sox took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on an RBI double from Kelly Shoppach, but the Rangers knotted the game at one in the last of the sixth when Elvis Andrus scored on a Josh Hamilton groundout. That set the stage for Aviles in the ninth. After Texas closer Joe Nathan recorded the first two outs, Daniel Nava and pinch-hitter Jarrod Saltalamacchia worked him for walks before Aviles lined a 3-2 pitch into left-center to score Nava with the game-winner.

Crawford on hitting seventh: 'I'm cool with it'

Speaking to reporters before Tuesday night's game with the Rangers in Arlington, Texas, Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford said he has no problem with manager Bobby Valentine's decision to hit him seventh.

Crawford had told WEEI.com on July 16 that he was still upset after being dropped out of the No. 2 spot by former Red Sox manager Terry Francona after two games last season. But after talking to Valentine, and understanding his return from an elbow injury was still a work in progress, he was more accepting of the move this time around.

"Last year was more like trying to prove to the manager and all that kind of stuff, just fighting against myself, and this year I understand, OK, I might be at the bottom sometimes, I might be at the top," Crawford said. "I'm cool with it. I've come to grips that that...
