ARLINGTON, Texas -- A. Bertrand Traore Jersey .J. Pierzynski and Mike Napoli had run-producing hits in the first inning against their former team and the Boston Red Sox got above .500 for the first time since three games into the season with a series-clinching 5-2 victory at Texas on Sunday. Napoli put the Red Sox ahead to stay with an RBI double, two batters before Pierzynskis two-run single. Both went to Boston as free agents after being in Texas -- Pierzynski was the Rangers primary catcher last season, and Napoli was there the previous two years. John Lackey (5-2) struck out nine while allowing two runs over seven innings. The big right-hander threw 75 of 105 pitches for strikes without any walks. Rangers lefty Robbie Ross (1-4) made it through 6 2-3 innings and a career-high 112 pitches, settling down after being down 4-0 after two innings. Koji Uehara, who also went from Texas to Boston in 2013, worked a perfect ninth for his ninth save straight save. The Red Sox (19-18) won the last two games in the series after being held to one hit by Yu Darvish Friday night. They have won six of their last eight games, and have a winning record for the first time since winning two of three in the season-opening series at Baltimore. Shin-Soo Choo homered for the Rangers, who have lost 10 of 14 overall and dropped seven of their last nine home games. Dustin Pedroias two-out solo homer in the seventh chased Ross, and was the first Red Sox hit since Jonny Gomes one-out single in the third. Ross faced the minimum 13 batters between that, with only one runner reaching on an error being wiped out on a double play grounder. It was the second homer for Pedroia, who led off the game with a double before Napoli drove him home. Lackey, a Texas native, made his 20th road start against the Rangers, surpassing Seattles Felix Hernandez for the most. Lackey is 14-15 overall with a 5.71 ERA in his career against Texas -- those are his most losses and highest ERA against any AL team. Choos fourth homer was an opposite-field shot to left-centre in the fourth to make it 4-1. Mitch Moreland had an RBI double in the seventh before Lackey struck out his final two batters with two runners on base. Notes: Boston is 10-4 against left-handed starters. ... This is the earliest Boston and Texas have completed a season series, which the Red Sox won 4-2. The Rangers had won the series each of the previous five seasons. .... Texas is 31-18 vs. Boston since 2009, still the best record by any Red Sox opponent in that span. ... Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks was scratched with soreness in his right hand after being hit by a pitch Saturday night. The Red Sox said it was a precautionary move and expect him to be available for their next game Tuesday. ... Napoli has reached base in 31 consecutive games. ... Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre, shifted toward shortstop, made a back-handed scoop catch after running a long way for David Ortizs popup near the foul line to end the second. ... Boston is off Monday, its third of four scheduled off days in a 22-day span. Asmir Begovic Jersey . The Blue Jackets play Thursday night at New Jersey in their first game after the NHLs Olympic hiatus. A native of Trencin, Slovakia, Gaborik has represented his country at the 2006 and 2010 Olympics but was unable to play in Sochi because of his injury. Alexandre Pato Jersey . - Novak Djokovic beat John Isner 7-5, 6-7 (2), 6-1 on Saturday to reach the final of the BNP Paribas Open, where hell resume his longtime rivalry with Roger Federer. http://www.chelseasoccerjerseysonline.com/womens-champions-chelsea-jersey/ . 11 Ana Ivanovic and American Sloane Stephens, and former world No.COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Take out a loan or even a second mortgage, forgo Christmas presents or split a hotel room. Faced with the possibility of two big post-season trips under the new college football playoff system, some players parents are doing all they can to see their kids under the spotlight. A bowl game trip can cost thousands of dollars. Although schools are permitted to reimburse families who need it for some costs out of a special assistance fund, some are questioning if its time to provide more help now that teams could play in two games in the post-season if they progress to the national championship. Two games means two hotel rooms, two car trips, two sets of meals on the road. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer brought the issue up right after his team got a playoff berth. You know what my biggest thing (is)? What are we going to do with our players families? he said. People are all worried about the playoff and whos going to play who. (But) how is that mom and dad or mom and uncle going to go see their kid play? For now, parents of players at Oregon, Florida State, Alabama and Ohio State are rushing to make plans -- and split costs. Cassandra Greene has missed just one of her sons college games -- and that was in 2011. Thats 50 and counting so she can follow senior receiver Rashad Greene, Florida States all-time leader in receiving yards and receptions. A case manager for the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities who is also working on her Masters degree, Greene said bowl trips typically cost her $700-$800. She already has hotel reservations in California and Texas, thanks to a relative who works in the industry, but the financials are a strain. With family support, Im going, Cassandra said. Its tough. Youve got to sit down and make some logical decisions. You have to put some things that you really dont need and some things that you dont have to do, you have to put all that in perspective and say Im going to the game. Some things I said I wanted for Christmas or some things that people were going to buy me for Christmas, I was like, Dont give me gifts. Contribute to me going to California. But, its worth it. The money coming into the conferences and schools involved in the new college playoff system is staggering: $50 million per big-five conference, $6 million for each school in the semifinals, $2 million per team for expenses. NCAA rules do not currently allow players to be compensated -- even though ESPN is reportedly paying $500 million this year to televise the CFP games. In a sport where top coaches routinely make between $4 million and $7 million a year and get six-figure bonuses just for getting a team into the playooff, families have few advocates. Kurt Zouma Jersey. . Under NCAA guidelines, schools can reimburse families for some travel costs. In the case of Ohio State and other major schools, a players family can receive up to $800 for post-season travel. But those guidelines were developed under a one-bowl post-season setup. The parents arent even allowed to share the experiences that the kids have -- which are once-in-a-lifetime experiences, said Guss Armstead, father of Oregon defensive lineman Arik Armstead. He said he is fortunate enough to be able to drive to his sons game. So there needs to be some way that the parents can get some assistance to get to some of their kids games. Alabama linebacker Trey DePriest will have his mother, Angie, grandmother, Sue, and his girlfriend at however many games the Tide has left. As always. The three women will drive together from their home in Springfield, Ohio, to New Orleans and, if Bama wins, will drive to Arlington, Texas, for the national championship game and will split a hotel room to watch DePriest play. Its hard but were going to go, said Angie DePriest, a phlebotomist at Springfield Regional Medical Center. We havent missed a game since hes been playing. The only time theyve flown to a game was for the BCS championship against Notre Dame in south Florida two years ago. The others, they just hop in a car. The expense is a huge challenge but my mother, myself and Treys girlfriend split the cost so it makes it a little easier so its not just on one person, she said. Allowing a few days at the bowl city, a typical roundtrip flight from Gainesville, Florida, to Los Angeles would run between $950 and $1,200, with even distant hotels costing $200 a night with a car needed at around $100 a day. For parents of Ohio State players going to New Orleans, a roundtrip flight, hotels and car would likely cost $2,000 per person per trip. Ohio State AD Gene Smith says he will push for more help for those needing it to see their sons participate. I am on record with the fact we need legislation to allow us to (fund) these trips, he said. But when the stadium lights shine on the players this year, there will be dozens of proud parents, siblings and grandparents in the stands, all who found some way -- any way -- to get there for that one shining moment. We have all those people who sat in that room and selected (teams), Meyer said of the CFP committee. I wonder if they have another room of people deciding to make sure that we treat the players the right way. ------ AP Sports Writers Anne Peterson in Portland, Oregon, John Zenor in Birmingham, Alabama, and Kareem Copeland in Gainesville, Florida, contributed to this report.
