Tim Wakefield (top right) was OK, allowing 4 runs in 6 innings, as he is now 2-1/4.40/20. Matt Albers allowed
a run in a third of an inning, and Rich Hill could not record an out before leaving the game with an elbow injury. Daniel Bard, with 1 2/3 innings, and Jonathan Papelbon, two runs in 1 inning, closed it off. Dustin Pedroia went 2-4, raising his average up to .245, as he has been on an off year so far. David Ortiz had a very nice game, going 2-4 with 2 runs and a solo home run, as he is now a very good .313/13/28. Jarrod Saltalamacchia (left) only went 1-4, but he did have that very clutch 2-run single, his 16th and 17th runs batted in of the season. After an off day tomorrow, the A's will come to town on Friday and Clay Buchholz (4-3/3.41/44) and Josh Outman (1-0/2.08/4) will battle.
