Clay Buchholz (right) did not have too bad of a game, by the standards of Red Sox pitching this year, at least. He allowed 4 home runs, all solo, through 6 1/3 innings, earning the loss and setting his ERA at 5.68. Dennys Reyes then threw a scoreless 2/3 of an inning and Jonathan Papelbon allowed 1 run in the 8th inning. The offense was not good for the Red Sox, as their one run was scored by Kevin Youkilis on a single by Carl Crawford, who had his first 2 hits in a Red Sox uniform. Tomorrow, the Sox have a day off and then send
Josh Beckett out to face Josh Tomlin and the Indians at 7:05 on Tuesday.
David Ortiz- a 2-4 day will put his average at .333 to start the year
Carl Crawford- his first two hits in a Red Sox uniform and an RBI
Dennys Reyes- Reyes appears to be working out for the Sox, pitching in his 3rd straight day for the Sox
Clay Buchholz- While he was not as bad as the other Red Sox pitchers, he still allowed 4 runs in 6 1/3, setting his ERA at 5.68
Jacoby Ellsbury- 0-4 with a strikeout and 3 runners left on base
Adrian Gonzalez- His first bad day with the Sox, going 0-4 with 2 strikeouts
Jed Lowrie- Despite some slick fielding, he did go 0-4
Jarrod Saltalamacchia- Still hitless on the season, going 0-3 with a strikeout
I hope that the Red Sox can turn their season around in Cleveland in the next games.
