Last night the Red Sox lost 3-5 to the Rays, finishing their week at 3-3. They got there by losing a series 1-2 to the Rays and winning a series 2-1 to the Mariners. Our Player of the Week is Marco Scutaro (right) who had no homers and 5 RBIs and he is now .274/7/45 as he has been pretty good this year. Clay Buchholz had a great start this week allowing 2 runs in 7.1 innings and Jon Lester allowed 1 run in 7 innings as they have both been great this year. The Red Sox have a day off today but then they have Josh Beckett (4-3/6.50/81) and Brian Matusz (6-12/4.79/111) take the hill in Baltimore. If the Sox want to make the playoffs they need to do very well over the next few weeks.
