Today, the Sox dropped another game, this one to the Astros by a score of 10-7. They are now even at 9-9. Dustin Pedroia hit a 3-run bomb and an RBI double in a 2-4 day for him, this spring he is now .382/1/7 in a good spring for him! Mike Cameron also drilled a homer for the Sox, he is now .333/1/5 this spring as he is also doing quite well. Jon Lester had a good day for the Sox, he threw 5.1 innings, allowing 3 runs, and striking out 7 as it looks like he has not lost that strikeout skill as he struck out 225 last year. Jason Varitek had 2 hits (.333/0/0) and Jacoby Ellsbury had 3 hits (.250/2/5). Jonathan Papelbon failed in this game... pretty badly. In 0.1 of an inning, he allowed 6 runs and bought the loss for the Sox in a tough game. Tomorrow they face the Rays and Cardinals in a double-header.
