Brock Holt drove in a pair of runs against his former team, Jordan Lyles tossed seven innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts and the Texas Rangers routed the host Boston Red Sox 10-1 on Saturday night.

Holt (2-for-6) knocked RBI singles in both the second and fourth innings. Lyles (6-10) permitted five hits and three walks in a bounce-back outing after losing three straight and five of his last six starts.

Andy Ibanez finished with three RBIs for Texas. Nick Solak, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Yohel Pozo all drove in one run apiece for the Rangers, who had lost four straight and seven of their last nine games.

Enrique Hernandez had an RBI single for Boston. Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez (9-7) was hit around to the tune of five runs on eight hits with a walk and three strikeouts in just 3 2/3 innings.

Boston has dropped four of its last five games. The Red Sox bounced back from a three-game sweep at the rival New York Yankees with a 6-0 win over the Rangers to open the three-game series Friday.

Nathaniel Lowe doubled and Pozo walked to open the second inning before Solak's RBI single put Texas ahead 1-0. Holt, who spent seven seasons with Boston from 2013 to 2019, doubled the Rangers' lead three batters later with his single.

Boston got on the board in the third when Hernandez's hit plated Bobby Dalbec following a leadoff double.

Texas tacked on three more runs with two outs in the fourth. Holt singled to restore the Rangers' two-run lead before Kiner-Falefa's double made it 4-1. Adolis Garcia followed with a single that later plated Kiner-Falefa on a throwing error.

Ibanez added an RBI double in the fifth to make it 6-1 and was credited with two more RBIs on his single in Texas' four-run eighth. Kiner-Falefa also scored on a wild pitch prior to Pozo's RBI single in the inning.
