BOSTON -- David Ortiz stood in the on-deck circle as Texas intentionally walked Dustin Pedroia, hoping the move to put runners on first and second with nobody out would result in the Boston slugger grounding into a double play. Ortiz did not oblige, driving the first pitch he saw for a three-run homer that lifted the Red Sox to a 6-3 victory over the Rangers on Thursday night after trailing by three runs. It was his 11th career walkoff home run and first in nearly four years. "They dont like to mess with Papi late in the game. They stopped doing that," Ortiz said. "In that kind of situation, pretty much most of the time its either a walk or something else happens. I just keep my patience." Jonny Gomes led off the ninth with a double to centre off left-hander Michael Kirkman (0-2), who then walked Pedroia intentionally with Ortiz watching and waiting. After going 0 for 3 with a walk, Ortiz delivered a shot that landed in an empty Texas bullpen. Ortiz watched his homer for a few moments before trotting his way toward home where he was met by a swarm of celebrating teammates. "I think it was a good move. I dont think there was anything wrong with that," Ortiz said of the walk to Pedroia. "Its part of the game. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesnt." It certainly did not Thursday. "Apparently he was just sitting on that pitch," Kirkman said. "I thought it was a really good pitch -- good movement inside, right where I wanted it. He just got the barrel to it." Andrew Bailey (2-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for Boston, which took two of three from Texas. Jacoby Ellsbury scored the tying run on a fielders choice in the seventh inning of his first game after sitting out five straight because of a groin injury. Ellsbury had a pair of doubles and two singles. Gomes also had four hits and Pedroia hit a two-run double in the third. Jeff Baker and Adrian Beltre drove in all of Texas runs on early homers off of Jon Lester. The Rangers didnt score after Beltres solo homer in the third and the Rangers bullpen couldnt hold off Boston down the stretch. Texas manager Ron Washington said pitching around the right-handed Pedroia for the left-on-left matchup between Kirkman and Ortiz seemed he best option. "Its not the first left-hander Big Papi got, but that was the right move to make right there," Washington said. "It was the only move to make. I can live with Papi doing that." Texas led 3-2 until Ellsbury scored in the seventh when Mike Napoli beat out the throw on a grounder that would have ended the inning after Boston loaded the bases with one out. Napoli hit a sharp grounder to first baseman Lance Berkman, who bounced his throw to Elvis Andrus covering second. "We had a couple of opportunities and we were finally able to cash in," Boston manager John Farrell said. Jon Lester survived a rocky first few innings and pitched through the sixth for Boston, leaving with the Red Sox trailing 3-2 on Bakers two-run homer in the second and a solo shot by Beltre in the third. Lester also had to get himself out of trouble in the first by striking out Nelson Cruz after a two-out walk to Berkman and a single by Beltre. Boston got two back with two outs in the third when Pedroia doubled off the centre field wall after Jose Iglesias reached on a walk and Ellsbury singled. Lester allowed three runs on seven hits, walked three and struck out four. Texas starter Derek Hollands line was nearly identical. He allowed two runs on nine hits, also walking three and striking out four. Holland was 5-0 against Boston entering the game.

Arnold Palmer still had a parking spot outside his old office at Golf Channel, the network he co-founded more than two decades ago.On Monday, hours after the golfing great died at age 87, the space was filled with flowers, candles and pictures as rain poured down on the makeshift memorial at the Orlando, Florida, headquarters.As the network began its continuous, commercial-free coverage Sunday night, the loss was a personal one for employees at the first U.S. single-sport cable channel.All of them seemed to have some sort of Arnold Palmer story, Golf Channel President Mike McCarley said in a phone interview Monday.There were already crews in place Sunday both in Orlando for a late-night recap show and in Minnesota for the coming weeks Ryder Cup at Hazeltine. The network interrupted coverage of the PGA Tour Champions event to start what would become 23 straight hours of live programming.Sixty-five staffers were at Hazeltine, but the commentators there originally werent supposed to go on air until late Monday. Technicians hustled to get the set operational Sunday night.In Orlando, 30 members of the production crew came in overnight. Twenty-five staffers started their normal shifts for the Morning Drive show at 1 a.m., but they stayed an extra five hours until 3 p.m. to handle an additional afternoon coverage slot.Another 21 employees in operations, tech and graphics either stayed late Sunday or came in overnight.With word of Palmers death spreading Sunday evening, Golf Channel executive producer Molly Solomon arrived at headquarters around 8:30 p.m. and still hadnt left as of late afternoon Monday.McCarley said the network waited to announce the news until it could be confirmed with Palmers family. Officials coordinated with partner NBC Sports, which had Al Michaels inform millions of viewers during Sunday Night Football.By laate afternoon Monday, more than 60 live interviews had been conducted.dddddddddddd Among the subjects: Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Annika Sorenstam, Nick Faldo, Greg Norman and Ernie Els.On Sunday night, Solomon said, several people were too upset to talk. Fred Couples had to put the phone down when he broke into sobs.Live coverage was scheduled to extend until 8 p.m. EDT on Monday, when Golf Channel planned to re-air its four-hour documentary series, Arnie. The first three hours premiered in 2014 and were two years in the making.The planning for this day was a natural extension of that documentary process, McCarley said.Such as which subjects to interview. Which angles to touch on.The coverage will continue until at least midday Tuesday, when executives will assess how to make the transition to talk about the Ryder Cup, which starts Friday, taking a cue from viewers, McCarley said.Golf Channel debuted in 1995, and Comcast acquired sole ownership in 2000. The network became part of NBC Sports Group in 2011 after Comcast merged with NBCUniversal.When the headquarters were renovated, the spot of Palmers old office became the Arnold Palmer Research Library. Theres an employee cafeteria called Arnies.Morning Drive is shot in Studio A.P., with his signature umbrella over the on-air light outside. Palmer was there to cut the ribbon when the redesigned studio debuted a few years ago.From her office, Solomon could see the parking spot tributes grow Monday. At one point, a vendors truck pulled up, and the driver jumped out with the engine still running to snap a selfie with the memorial in the background.Orlando is a small town, she said. Everybody here feels a connection. ' ' '
