Daisuke Matsuzaka was not sharp, allowing 5 runs in 4 1/3 innings, as he is now 3-3/5.30/26, as he hasn't been too bad or good this year. Scott Atchison and Alfredo Aceves each allowed a run, in 1 2/3 and 3 innings, respectively. Jacoby Ellsbury had a pretty good day, going 2-5 with a run scored. Adrian Gonzalez went 3-5 with a run and 3 RBIs, including that huge walk-off double, as he is now .327/9/37 as he has been great. Kevin Youkilis went 2-4 with 2 RBIs on another huge hit, that 2-run double, as he is now .254/7/27 this year. J.D. Drew and Jed Lowrie each went 2-4, with 1 run and 2 runs, respectively. Jason Varitek had a rare good game, going 2-5 with 2 RBIs and a run. Tonight, Tim Wakefield (0-1/5.40/11) and Zach Britton (5-2/2.42/29) will square off.
