The Red Sox managed just six hits and one run in their series finale against the Tigers, resulting in a 5-1 loss. A once-promising series instead ended up with Boston dropping two of three in Detroit and getting outscored by an 11-1 count over the final 16 innings of the three-game set.
Sox starter John Lackey absorbed the loss on a day when his early command issues proved his undoing. The right-hander walked four in the first two innings, including a bases-loaded free pass to former Sox outfielder Johnny Damon in the second inning. He later hung a curve that Tigers shortstop Ramon Santiago hammered for a two-run homer.
Lackey (4-2) managed to last seven innings while throwing a season-high 123 pitches. Still, the right-hander has been inconsistent thus far in 2010, as his 4.86 ERA, .284 opponents' batting average, 3.8 walks per nine innings and 5.6 strikeouts per nine innings would all be career-worst marks for a season.
The Sox managed little against Tigers starter Armando Galarraga and the Tigers pitching staff. Galarraga, called up from Triple A for the start, allowed one run on three hits in 5-2/3 innings. The Sox were 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position.
