Red Sox Come Back in Vain (43-30)
Yesterday the Red Sox lost 6-8 to the Rockies. But the Rockies scored 3 runs in the 9th after the Sox had been ahead 6-5 after a comeback of their own. It was 4-0 Rockies, then Daniel Nava (right) smacked a 2-run double into the gap (2-4). The Rockies scored again (2-5). Daniel Nava got another RBI double (3-5). That's what Darnell McDonald hit a game-tying blast that went a good 15 rows up (5-5). Then Marco Scutaro hit a little bloop single to right field (6-5)! And you have to remember, this is all against Ubaldo Jimenez and we added 45 points to his ERA! Good work Red Sox! But Jonathan Papelbon could not hold the lead... Tonight, Daisuke Matsuzaka (5-2/4.59/37) and Jason Hammel (5-3/4.03/52) as the Sox will look to avoid the sweep.
