Weiland is Decent But Red Sox Fall to O's (58-37)

Last night, the Red Sox fell 6-2 to the Orioles in a tough game where they just never could muster up any offense. In the 2nd inning, the Orioles put runners at 1st and 3rd with 1 out, which set up for an RBI double by Mark Reynolds and an RBI groundout by Nolan Reimold to make it 2-0. In the 3rd, Nick Markakis came to score on a single by Matt Wieters. In the 5th, the Red Sox scored their only runs of the game on a home run by Jarrod Saltalamacchia to make it 3-2. With a runner on first in the 8th inning for the Orioles, back-to-back homers by Derrek Lee and Mark Reynolds made it 6-2.
Kyle Weiland was not bad in his 2nd major league start, he allowed 3 runs in 6 innings, however, he also earned his first loss. He is now 0-1/8.10/4 in 2 starts. Alfredo Aceves allowed 3 runs in 2 innings in relief. Josh Reddick played a great game, going 3-4 and scoring a run to make his batting average a remarkable .367. Jarrod Saltalamacchia went 1-3 with a 2-run homer, he is now .249/8/27. Today at 12:35, Andrew Miller (3-1/5.68/13) and Jake Arrieta (9-6/5.10/81) will square off in the rubber match.

Bright Spots:
Josh Reddick- 3-4 with a run scored
Jarrod Saltalamacchia- 1-3 with a 2-run homer

Dull Spots:
Alfredo Aceves- 3 runs in 2 innings of relief
Adrian Gonzalez- 0-4 with 2 strikeouts
Kevin Youkilis- 0-4
Carl Crawford- 0-4 with 3 runners left on base

This was a tough game, and I hope they win the series today.
