Red Sox Lose Game in Two Installments (4-6)
Today the Sox lost their second straight game, a 1-3 loss to the Rays. The game got suspended in the bottom of the 9th yesterday so they continued today and lost in 12 innings. Jason Varitek (right) hit a double and a home run, his 3rd of the year, he is now .417/3/3 in a strong opening for him. Josh Beckett, despite the loss, did a very good job, allowing 1 run in 7 innings, he is now 1-0/3.86/13 as he has been good after that rough Opening Day start. Mike Cameron seems to have recovered from his kidney stone that kept him out for a few days as he finished the game in center field (going 0-1). The Sox lost on a 3-run homer by Pat Burrell off Manny Delcarmen. The Red Sox play again later tonight with Clay Buchholz and James Shields pitching.
