Daisuke Matsuzaka (top right) was not too bad in his 4+ innings of work, allowing 3 runs, however, only 1 was earned, while allowing 3 hits, he is now 2-2/3.81/20 this year, as he has not been that bad. Matt Albers did very well in relief, throwing 2 shutout innings of relief. Unfortunately, when Bobby Jenks came on, the Mariners came through, Jenks has had a rough year and is now 1-2/8.64/10 after last night's loss. Hideki Okajima and Daniel Bard each threw a scoreless inning. Adrian Gonzalez had a pretty good day, going 2-4 with a run scored. Kevin Youkilis went 1-3 with an RBI and is now .213/5/15 this year. David Ortiz went 1-4 with an RBI and is now .280/2/11 as he has not been bad this year. Of course, the Red Sox star of the night was Mike Cameron, who went 2-4 with 2 home runs and is now .185/2/4 as we saw the Mike Cameron before we had signed him.... two years ago. Tonight, John Lackey (2-2/6.35/14) and Doug Fister (1-3/3.19/22) will start at 7:10.
