John Lackey was not sharp, allowing 5 runs in 3 1/3 innings, earning the loss and becoming 5-6/7.36/34. Michael Bowden threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings, Matt Albers threw 2 scoreless innings, and Dan Wheeler threw a scoreless inning. Dustin Pedroia did a good job of reaching base, going 2-3 with a walk. Adrian Gonzalez had a great game against his old team, going 4-4 with an RBI single, as he is now .359/15/69. Kevin Youkilis went 2-4. After a day off tomorrow, the Sox will head to Pittsburgh, sending Jon Lester (9-3/3.70/95) against Paul Maholm (3-8/3.29/61).
Michael Bowden- 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief
Matt Albers- 2 innings of scoreless relief
Dan Wheeler- a scoreless inning of relief
Dustin Pedroia- 2-3 with a walk
Adrian Gonzalez- 4-4 with an RBI
Kevin Youkilis- 2-4
John Lackey- 5 runs in 3 1/3 innings, ouch!
David Ortiz- 0-3 with 7 runners left on base!
I am unhappy that the Sox dropped a series to the Padres but hopefully they can turn it around.
