Daniel Bard allowed a run on a single and a walk while striking out two in his second Triple-A appearance. The right-hander entered the game against the Gwinnett Braves at the start of the sixth inning. He gave up a ground ball single, and then after a passed ball advanced the runner to second, issued a walk. A double stela put runners on second and third with no outs, but after a run-scoring groundout, Bard came back to strike out the next two hitters -- one swinging and one looking -- to strand a runner on third.

MIAMI – The Red Sox fell to three games under .500 for the first time since May 16, dropping a 4-1 decision to Miami Monday night at Marlins Park.
The Sox, who have now lost seven of their last eight games, fell into a four-run deficit after two innings and couldn’t solve Marlins’ starter Josh Johnson. The Miami hurler limited the Red Sox to just one run on four hits over seven innings, striking out seven.
Taking the loss was Sox starter Josh Beckett, who settled down to retire 15 of his final 16 batters after allowing the hosts four runs on six hits in the first two frames. Beckett finished his seven-inning outing allowing four runs on six hits, striking out five and walking one. The righty has tossed at least seven innings and not allowed a homer in each of his last six starts (a career-high).

MIAMI -- According to Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, reliever Rich Hill has been diagnosed with a strained flexor muscle in his left elbow and surmised the lefty could be out "a month or more."
Hill was examined by Dr. James Andrews Monday, with the examination including an arthrogram (an MRI in which dye is injected in the area in question).
"He'll have some time to rest that and get it back," Valentine said prior to his team's game against the Marlins Monday night. "He threw 94 mph his last game and threw his breaking ball and felt a little stiffness. That stiffness was not in the ligament, luckily. They feel it was in the flexor muscle."
Hill last pitched June 8, and has only appeared in two games during June. Since returning from Tommy John surgery, the reliever has made 17 appearances, totaling a 2.63 ERA over 13 2/3 innings.
