Josh Beckett (top right) was not particularly good, allowing 4 runs in 6 innings, he is now 2-1/2.65/32 this year, as for the most part, he has been fantastic. Tim Wakefield threw a scoreless7th inning of relief. Daniel Bard blew it again, allowing a run in the 8th inning, he is now 0-3/3.97/11. Jacoby Ellsbury had another great game, as he is really settling in, after a 3-5 day at the plate, along with a run scored. Adrian Gonzalez also had a good game, going 2-4 with an RBI, he is now .290/1/13 this year. Kevin Youkilis (left) only had one hit, but it was big, as he went 1-4 with 3 RBIs and a run scored, he is now .214/5/14 this year. David Ortiz went 2-4 in a pretty good game for him. Tonight, Jon Lester (2-1/2.59/30) will go head to head with Brad Bergesen (0-3/5.40/11) in a game that the Sox will hopefully win.
Tim Wakefield- A scoreless inning of relief
Jacoby Ellsbury- 3-5 with a run scored
Adrian Gonzalez- 2-4 with an RBI and a double
Kevin Youkilis- 1-4 with that big 3-run shot
David Ortiz- 2-4
Daniel Bard- The loss, with a run in the 8th inning
Carl Crawford- 0-4
Jason Varitek- 0-3 with a strikeout
It would be so humiliating to be swept by the Orioles, so I really hope it doesn't happen.
