MIDDLESBROUGH, England (AP) - Gaston Ramirez scored a solo masterpiece, following a lung-busting run with a delicate finish as Middlesbrough earned a commanding 2-0 victory over Bournemouth in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Ramirez’s 39th-minute goal started with a block deep in his own half, and he ran the length of the pitch as Harry Arter, Andrew Surman, and finally goalkeeper Artur Boruc were beaten by his drive, guile, and craft.

For a side which took a single point from its first four home games, it was a heady moment. It was followed in the second half by another pleasing move finished by Stewart Downing.

Downing last scored a league goal for his hometown team in 2008, in an 8-1 triumph over Manchester City.
