Erik Bedard was not bad, as despite allowed 3 runs and 7 hits, he also struck out 5 in 5 innings, and he threw three 1-2-3 innings, he is now 4-7/3.55/92. In relief, Franklin Morales allowed 2 runs in 1/3 of an inning, and Alfredo Aceves threw a scoreless 2/3. Andrew Miller then allowed 2 runs in 2 2/3 innings, and Dan Wheeler threw a scoreless 1/3. Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-3 with a run, but he couldn't manage to be the hero again. Adrian Gonzalez went 1-4 with an RBI double and a run scored. Josh Reddick (left) went 1-4 with a solo home run, as he is now .338/5/22. Tonight, the Yankees will come to town for a crucial series for 1st place and the Sox will send Jon Lester (11-4/3.17/124) against Bartolo Colon (8-6/3.30/98).
