John Lackey was not sharp, in fact he was really bad... again, as he moved to 2-5/8.01/19 after allowing 9 runs in 6 2/3 innings. Tim Wakefield threw 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief after him but it was not nearly enough. Adrian Gonzalez had a good day, going 2-4 with 2 runs and a home run, as he is now .329/7/29 this year. Kevin Youkilis went 1-3 with an RBI single. David Ortiz went 1-4 with a solo home run, as he is now .281/6/18. J.D. Drew went 1-2 with 2 walks, and Carl Crawford went 2-4. Jacoby Ellsbury went 0-4 to end his hitting streak at 19 games. The Red Sox have a day off tonight, but on Friday, Clay Buchholz (3-3/4.19/23) and the Red Sox will go to New York to face the Yankees and Bartolo Colon (2-1/3.86/37).

This was a really disappointing game and series for me, as the Red Sox did not play well.
