After splitting the first two games of a three-game series, the Red Sox will look to return to .500 on Wednesday afternoon against the Rangers. The Red Sox are 11-7 since the All-Star break against American League opponents with better records than them . . . and 1-6 against teams with worse records.
Josh Beckett will return to the mound for the first time since July 31, when he suffered back spasms while pitching on a wet Fenway Park mound. He will face off against Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison, an All-Star who is 13-6 with a 3.17 ERA this year.
