ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Derek Holland struck out seven and pitched into the eighth inning and the Texas Rangers took advantage of a couple of wild throws by Josh Beckett to score the go-ahead run in a 5-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night.
    
Elvis Andrus was hit on the left forearm by a pitch to reach with one out in the seventh. He got to third on a single by Adrian Beltre and scored to break a 3-all tie when Beckett (5-9) threw a wild pitch that bounced several feet wide of the plate.
    
Holland (7-5) allowed three runs and five hits in 7 2-3 innings, and came out of the game soon after a stretch when he retired 20 of 22 batters.
    
Nelson Cruz led off the eighth with his 13th homer, to greet Red Sox reliever Matt Albers.
