Daisuke Matsuzaka had a rough day, to say the least, he allowed 7 runs in 2+ innings, to put him at 0-2/12.86/4 to start the year. Alfredo Aceves did a very good job out of the 'pen, thowing 2 2/3 shutout inningsto help the cause. Carl Crawford may be getting into his groove, as he went 2-5 with his first extra-base hit of the year last night. Adrian Gonzalez and David Ortiz, two of the slowest guys on the team, each had triples for the Sox. Jacoby Ellsbury is now tied for the team lead in home runs with 2. Tonight, Jon Lester (0-0/3.65/9) will go up against David Price (0-2/4.85/9) in the marquee matchup of the series.
Carl Crawford- a 2-5 day in the leadoff spot with a double
Adrian Gonzalez- 1-2 with an RBI triple
David Ortiz- 2-4 with a triple and 2 RBIs
Jacoby Ellsbury- 2-4 with a home run
Alfredo Aceves- 2 2/3 shutout innings
Daisuke Matsuzaka- 7 runs in 2 innings, need I say more?
Jarrod Saltalamacchia- 0-4 with 2 strikeouts
Marco Scutaro- 0-4 with an error as well
Dan Wheeler- 4 runs in 1 inning
Tim Wakefield- 5 runs in 3 1/3 innings
I am sad that the Sox lost, but at least they can win the next two games.
