After an ugly Red Sox loss on Tuesday night, adding another in such an bad, heartwrenching fashion seemed both highly plausible and completely impossible at the same time.
Pence was up in the sixth inning against the Boston Red Sox and drove a fly ball down the right-field corner of Fenway Park, where Red Sox outfielder Brock Holt made a leaping attempt but ended up getting tangled in the fence.
Christian Vazquez doubled to lead off the ninth and was pinch-run for by Marco Hernandez. Michael Chavis was intentionally walked.
Red Sox skipper Alex Cora was ejected in the fifth inning attempting to defend outfielder Andrew Benintendi, who was also tossed.
The game was originally scheduled for 7:10 but was moved up three hours so as not to conflict with Game 7 of the NHL Stanley Cup Final between the St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins at nearby TD Garden.
Devers grounded a single to center with two outs that plated Benintendi to cut it to 2-1 in the bottom of the inning.
It happened after Texas tied the game in the 8th inning with an unearned run. The team has dropped five of their last six games, including two consecutively against the Texas Rangers.
