The Texas Rangers (3-4) are going into Fenway Park to face the defending world champions, already a daunting task.
Here is a list of what the Rangers need to do to shift their fortunes against the Sox:
1) Strong outings from their starting pitching – against the Rays, the Rangers got excellent starts from both Nick Martinez on Saturday and Yu Darvish on Sunday.
2) Play flawless defense – Texas has committed errors in four of its first six games, including one four-error game in Friday night’s loss to Tampa Bay.
3) More offense from their top four hitters – Shin-Soo Choo, Elvis Andrus, Prince Fielder and Adrian Beltre—which could also be the best group of top-four hitters in the game—are hitting just .252 after six games.
