 Lowell's go-ahead sac fly
 Nixon goes deep
Trot Nixon went 4-for-4, including a three-run homer in the first inning, and Tim Wakefield pitched well against the Rangers, but Jonathan Papelbon blew his first save chance in the eighth inning. This set up Mike Lowell's sacrifice fly, which drove in the eventual winning run. Papelbon struck out the side in the ninth for the victory.
