Bullpen Ruins Magnificent Start for Wakefield (1-3)

Last night when I stopped watching the game and went to sleep; the score was 3-0 Red Sox in the 6th inning, final score 3-4 Royals. You just can't take anything for granted, Tim Wakefield (right) tore the Royals apart with 2 runs in 7 innings for a 2.57 ERA, but the bullpen gave it up, which has been common n this current 3-game losing streak. But don't worry, last year the Sox started 2-6 but then they had an 11-game win streak, remember that!? The Sox (apart from the bullpen) played a good game. J.D. Drew who had been having a bit of trouble slammed a monster 2-run homer, in a 1-3 night for him. David Ortiz was ejected from the ballgame after striking out and Jeremy Hermida provided a fiting replacement, going 1-1 in his first appearance. Daniel Bard ended up with the loss with 1 run in 2 innings and a blown save. Even if the Sox may lose tonight, it will be a great pitching matchup for sure as Josh Beckett goes against reigning Cy Young Award winner, Zack Greinke!


  1. Tough loss - but great work by wakefield!


  2. We need to win these games against KC. No excuse for last night. Hopefully Beckett gets some support tonight because they will need it against Greinke!
