Wakefield Unable To Keep Momentum Going (73-55)
Earlier tonight, the Red Sox lost 2-4 to the Mariners to be denied the sweep. Tim Wakefield was not particularly sharp, allowing 4 runs and 3 earned runs in 5.2 innings, he is now 3-10/5.27/72 as he has been pretty bad this year. The Red Sox scored their runs on a solo home run by J.D. Drew (right) and a run by Ryan Kalish. Drew is now .258/17/59 as he is going on a hot streak and Ryan Kalish is now .233/2/8 as he is on a cold streak. The Red Sox resume their season on Friday after an off-day tomorrow and Jon Lester (13-8/3.26/166) and David Price (15-5/2.97/146) will square off in Tampa Bay. The Red Sox stand 5.5 back in the division and the wild card as the Yankees and Rays are tied.
