Tim Wakefield pitched pretty well going for his 200th career win, allowing 3 runs in
7 innings. However, he earned the loss and is now 6-4/5.06/52. Alfredo Aceves relieved him with a scoreless inning, as he has just been lights out from the bullpen this year. Jarrod Saltalamacchia (left) was just about the only offensive bright spot for the Red Sox, as he went 1-3 with a solo home run and is now .257/9/32. Drew Sutton (1-2) and Marco Scutaro (1-3) got the only other Red Sox hits of the night, as it was a tough game for our batters. The Red Sox and Jon Lester (10-4/3.23/116) will look to even the score against Philip Humber (8-6/3.27/73) and the White Sox tomorrow night.
