This was a tough game for the Red Sox, Clay Buchholz (top right) pitched pretty well, but the Orioles knocked him around. He ended up allowing 4 runs and 12 hits in just 6 2/3 innings, he earned the loss and is now 1-4/5.33/15 this season. Hideki Okajima threw 1/3 of a scoreless inning and Matt Albers threw one shutout frame. The one RBI belonged to Kevin Youkilis, who went 0-3 with that sacrifice fly, as sac flies were the story of this game. No one Red Sox batter had more than one hit, so 6 players (Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Adrian Gonzalez, David Ortiz, J.D. Drew, and Jason Varitek) all had a hit. Ellsbury's and Gonzalez's hits were doubles as they now have 4 and 7 respectively, this season. Tonight, Josh Beckett (2-1/1.93/28) and Jeremy Guthrie (1-3/3.12/13) will take the hill at Camden Yards.
Matt Albers- a scoreless inning against his old team
Dustin Pedroia- 1-3 with a run scored
Jed Lowrie- 0-4 with 4 runners left on base
Carl Crawford- 0-4 with 2 strikeouts
I am unhappy that the Sox lost tonight, but if they win the next two games, they can still break .500.
