Red Sox Fall to Sabathia, Yankees (63-48)
Yesterday, the Red Sox fell to the Yankees 2-5 in a day that they were just not sharp as a group. In the second inning, Victor Martinez (right) gave the Sox an early lead with a 2-run homer, he is having a good year at .283/10/40. John Lackey just wasn't good, he allowed 5 runs in 6 innings and he is now 10-7/4.60/95. Adrian Beltre had a good day, going 2-4 with no home runs or RBIs. Yesterday the Red Sox made a minor league deal to acquire first baseman Carlos Delgado since our friend Kevin Youkilis has failed us and is out for the year (big surprise, how many injuries do we have!? 15?!). Delgado has had two major hip surgeries in the last 10 months, but Terry Francona said that "Delgado was swinging the bat great" which is definitely good. Tonight at 8:00, Josh Beckett (3-1/5.70/58) and A.J. Burnett (9-9/4.93/96). I seriously hope we can win this one, if we want to be in the playoffs, we will have to do really well.
