Done it by a punchless offense and some ill-timed defensive mistakes, the Red Sox saw their three-game winning streak snapped in a 4-1 loss to the Texas Rangers.

The Sox managed just three hits and have scored a total of four runs in their last three games.

The Sox and Rangers were tied 1-1 in the sixth when an error by Xander Bogaerts put the potential go-ahead run on base. Starter Martin Perez gave way to Hirokazu Sawamura, whose first pitch was a hanging slider hit out by Jose Trevino. Isiah Kiner-Falefa added another solo homer in the seventh.

The Rangers' first run was aided by an error by Rafael Devers.

The only Red Sox run came in the sixth when Devers doubled to right, scoring Alex Verdugo.
