Buchholz Not Quite Good Enough In Loss (74-56)
Last night the Red Sox lost 2-3 to the Rays, the bad part was that they held the lead for most of the game and Clay Buchholz pitched very well through 7.1 innings. He allowed 2 runs, 1 earned in those 7.1 innings, he is now 15-5/2.21/105 as he has been great this year. Adrian Beltre hit an RBI sac fly and went 1-3. Victor Martinez hit his 3rd home run in 2 games, he is now .292/13/54 as he also went 4-5 yesterday. Unfortunately, Scott Atchison allowed a walk-off home run in the 10th inning to Dan Johnson. Tonight, John Lackey (12-7/4.51/114) and James Shields (12-11/4.76/153 will take the mound. The Sox fell back to 5.5 games back as the playoffs are looking grim.
