Red Sox Suffer Bad Loss At The Wrong Time (89-71)
Josh Beckett was very good until the 6th inning, but total he allowed 6 runs in 6 innings to close his season at 13-7/2.89/175, one of the best seasons of his career. He was relieved by Alfredo Aceves and Kyle Weiland with a scoreless inning each. Jacoby Ellsbury had a good game, going 2-4 and scoring a run. Dustin Pedroia also had a good day, going 2-4 and driving in a run. David Ortiz went 2-5. Jed Lowrie went 1-4 with a solo home run, as he is now .257/6/36. Tonight, the Red Sox will hope for a Yankees win and will send Erik Bedard (5-9/3.50/119) against Zach Britton (11-10/4.44/95).
Alfredo Aceves- a scoreless inning
Kyle Weiland- a scoreless inning
Jacoby Ellsbury- 2-4 with a run scored
Dustin Pedroia- 2-4 with an RBI
Jed Lowrie- 1-4 with a solo home run
Carl Crawford- 0-5 with 4 LOB
