Making a spot start on short notice, Tim Wakefield (top right) pitched pretty well, allowing 1 earned run in 5 1/3 innings, as he is now 0-0/4.24/10. However, Bobby Jenks was terrible out of the 'pen... again, he allowed 2 runs, and walked 3, in only 1/3 of an inning, getting himself his second blown save of the year. Matt Albers pitched very well after him, not allowing a hit in 2 innings, before Jonathan Papelbon pitched another scoreless inning and earned the win. Dustin Pedroia had a very good game, going 2-4 with a run scored, he is now .265/2/8. David Ortiz went 1-4 with the afore-mentioned 2-run double off the wall, making him now .267/2/13 this year. Carl Crawford (left) went 2-4 with that game-winning RBI, as he is now .168/1/7 this year, as he's gotten off to a very rough start. Tomorrow, the Angels will come to town, and we'll see Clay Buchholz (1-3/5.33/15) take on a tough challenge in Jered Weaver (6-0/0.99/49).
