Randy Williams tossed a scoreless inning, Daniel Bard threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings and Jonathan Papelbon allowed a run in a scoreless inning. Jacoby Ellsbury had a good game, going 2-4 with a home run and 2 runs scored, he is now .317/13/51. Dustin Pedroia went 2-5 with a solo home run, as he is now .291/13/46. Kevin Youkilis went 1-3 with a run and an RBI in a good day. David Ortiz only went 1-5 but he had 3 RBIs, his 56th, 57th, and 58th of the year. Josh Reddick went 1-4 with a 2-run homer as he is now .379/3/17. Tomorrow night, Josh Beckett (8-3/2.27/94) and Jeff Niemann (4-4/4.53/33) will square off in the series finale.
