Tough 7th Blows Close Game Wide Open (2-2)
Today, the Red Sox lost 1-6 to the Atlanta Braves, in a pretty tough loss for the Sox. They only had 6 hits in the ballgame, 3 of which came from the bat of David Ortiz (right). Ortiz had a great game, going 3-3 with the sole RBI of the game, he is now .625/1/4 this spring, he also had... guess what... a stolen base! Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-3 leading off today, he is now .333/0/0 this spring. John Lackey did alright starting, allowing one run in two innings, and getting a no-decision. Kyle Weiland was tagged with the loss, as he also went 2 innings allowing one run. Alex Wilson, however, was the one who blew the game open, allowing 3 runs on 2 hits in the 7th inning. It's too bad that the Sox lost, but tomorrow Stolmy Pimentel will start against the Phillies in replacement of Josh Beckett.
