Tim Wakefield was actually pretty good for most of the game, but after the grand slam he would up with 7 earned runs in 6 1/3 innings, and is now 6-3/5.15/47. Alfredo Aceves allowed 1 run in 2 2/3 innings of relief, as he has been so valuable out of the bullpen. Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-5 with a run and an RBI in a good day. Dustin Pedroia pushed his hit streak to 20 games in a 1-5 day where he scored a run. Adrian Gonzalez had a great day, going 3-5 with 2 runs and 2 RBIs, as he is now .346/17/82. Kevin Youkilis went 1-3 with 2 runs and a 2-run homer in a good day, as he is now .282/14/72. David Ortiz went 2-5 with 2 runs. Carl Crawford also played a good game, going 3-4 with 2 runs and 2 RBIs, as he is now .254/6/33. Josh Reddick continued to impress by going 2-5 with 2 runs and 1 RBI, as he is now .358/4/19. Jarrod Saltalamacchia (left) had a great game, going 3-4 with 4 RBIs, as he is now .259/8/31. Tomorrow night, Jon Lester (10-4/3.31/110) will return from the DL against Kyle Davies (1-9/7.32/44) and the Royals.
