Clay Buchholz (top right) had a very tough day at the ballpark, allowing 5 runs, 4 earned, in 3 2/3 innings. He earned his second loss, and is now 0-2/7.20/5 on the young season. Felix Doubront and Alfredo Aceves each allowed 2 runs, in 1.1 and 2 innings, respectively. Tim Wakefield pitched pretty well, pitching 2 shutout innings to finish the game. Dustin Pedroia (left) had a great day, going 3-4 with 3 doubles and 2 RBIs, he is now .355/1/5 to start the season. Kevin Youkilis and Jacoby Ellsbury each had RBI groundouts. Tomorrow, Josh Beckett (0-1/5.40/4) and C.C. Sabathia (0-0/1.38/13) will go head to head in the rubber match.
Dustin Pedroia- 3-4 with 2 RBIs and 3 doubles is quite good
Tim Wakefield- 2 shutout innings, as he is 0-0/3.00/3 to start the year
Jed Lowrie- looking like Scutaro's replacement with a 3-4 day
Clay Buchholz- 3 2/3 innings and 4 runs, as he is not off and running to start the year
Felix Doubront- 2 runs in 1 1/3 innings
Alfredo Aceves- 2 runs in 2 innings against his old team
Adrian Gonzalez- 0-4
David Ortiz- 0-5 with a strikeout
Jacoby Ellsbury- 0-4 with a run
I am sad that the Sox lost, but happy that I'm back to blogging.
