Yesterday the Red Sox lost in extra innings to the Yankees, a heartbreaking 1-3 loss. John Lackey (right) pitched a great game, going 6 shutout innings, giving 3 hits and striking out 3. David Ortiz drove in the only run of the game for them in a 1-4 night for him. He drove in Dustin Pedroia, who scored the one and only run for the Sox. Jonathan Papelbon really spoiled the game for the Sox, allowing a home run to Curtis Granderson in the 10th inning. The Red Sox just couldn't score tonight, which was a bit troubling. On Friday, the Sox play the Royals. The pitching matchup in those games will be Tim Wakefield (for the Red Sox) and Kyle Davies for the Royals. Once they are well-rested, despite being away from home, I think they will come through vs the Royals.
