BOSTON -- It didnt matter to the Rangers that the Boston Red Sox dominated the AL All-Star team, with six players making the roster -- and the possibility of another -- to two for Texas.No ones keeping score that (way), Rangers outfielder Ian Desmond said.When the season is over, no one is going to look back and say that team had seven All-Stars or that team had two. Its going to be this team won the World Series and everybody else came in second, he said after Texas beat Boston 7-2 on Tuesday night. They can have seven. We can have two. It doesnt matter.Shin-Soo Choo homered on David Prices first pitch of the game, and Robinson Chirinos hit a three-run shot off All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth to help the Rangers snap a three-game losing streak.Texas loaded the bases after Choos homer and took a 2-0 lead in the first, then made it 3-2 when Elvis Andrus scored to break a sixth-inning tie. It stayed that way until Kimbrel came on in the ninth and failed to retire any of the four batters he faced.In 12 pitches, a lot happened, said Red Sox manager John Farrell, whose team stranded 14 baserunners and went 2 for 16 with runners in scoring position. We had ample opportunity, with runners on base in almost every single inning. A missed opportunity tonight.The Red Sox had the most players selected to the AL roster for next weeks All-Star Game in San Diego, and second baseman Dustin Pedroia would make it seven if he wins the final vote. Texas had just Desmond and pitcher Cole Hamels.To have two -- and only two -- it speaks volumes to the team aspect of how our guys play, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. If were going to be limited to two, (its) the right two guys.Price (8-6) threw 46 pitches in first two innings -- 45 after Choo drove the first one of the game out to center. Texas loaded the bases on two singles and a walk before Prince Fielder struck out looking -- drawing a mock cheer from Boston fans.But the Rangers managed just one more run in the inning. Price settled down and the Red Sox tied it before Andrus singled and scored to make it 3-2 on Rougned Odors double.He flipped the switch tonight in like the third or fourth inning, Desmond said. He threw the ball really well. I think in his case it was just a little bit too late.Rangers starter A.J. Griffin left after four innings, and Cesar Ramos (3-3) pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings for the win.Mookie Betts, Pedroia and Travis Shaw had two hits apiece for the Red Sox. Jackie Bradley Jr. homered for Boston, which had won two straight.ALL-STARSBetts, Bradley and shortstop Xander Bogaerts will start for the AL in the All-Star Game, joining designated hitter David Ortiz, making his 10th and final appearance. Kimbrel and knuckleballer Stephen Wright were also selected.For a team with six All-Stars, the Red Sox arent playing very well. Boston is 8-13 since opening June with a three-game lead in the AL East, falling into third place.I dont think we are as bad as were showing, Bradley said. Were definitely capable of putting together a good run. Hopefully that comes soon.PRICE IS WRONGIn all, Price allowed three runs, eight hits and a walk, striking out 10. But he didnt want to talk about how he settled down and lasted eight innings, how he fanned Desmond in the fifth for his 1,500th career strikeout, or how he posted his sixth game of the season with 10 or more strikeouts.Theres nothing positive to put out, he said. Im tired of this. Its not me. Ive got to get better.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: Choo left the game in the fifth with lower back stiffness. ... 1B Mitch Moreland (right calf tightness) was not in the starting lineup for the third straight game. ... With three starters on the DL, Texas called up RHP Jose Leclerc from Triple-A Round Rock and designated LHP Michael Roth for assignment. Leclerc, 22, has split time between Double-A Frisco and Round Rock this season and has never played in the majors.Red Sox: Boston activated veteran C Ryan Hanigan (neck strain) from the 15-day DL following a rehab stint with Triple-A Pawtucket. The Red Sox optioned C Christian Vazquez to Pawtucket after Monday nights game against Texas.UP NEXTRangers: LHP Martin Perez (7-4, 3.39 ERA) is 6-0 with two no-decisions in his last eight starts. Perez, who leads the Rangers with 17 starts already, hasnt taken a loss since May 18, at Oakland.Red Sox: Wright (9-5, 2.42) gets another shot at the Rangers, who tagged him for eight runs and seven hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss at Texas on June 25. Jon Niese Jersey . Despite the cost, effort and an improved steroid test, its possible that very few -- if any -- positives will be detected, Dr. Richard Budgett told The Associated Press in an interview. "We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said. Joey Gallo Jersey . He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. http://www.officialrangersgearshop.com/Rangers-Matt-Moore-Kids-Jersey/ . The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. Prince Fielder Jersey . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Bartolo Colon Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.

If there is discipline, for whatever reason, I dont talk about it, I protect our kids. Thats how we go about our business here at YSU, and its always been my policy.WFMJ later reported senior running back Martin Ruiz, the teams second-leading rusher, was arrested last Tuesday for charges which include carrying a concealed weapon and improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle. His car had been pulled over for a turn signal violation.He carried the ball one time for four yards in the Wofford game.Youngstown State, a four-time FCS champion in the 1990s, is appearing in the playoffs for the first time since 2006.
