Lackey can't hold lead, Sox lose to A's

John Lackey suffered his 10th loss of the season, giving up three runs in the seventh inning, as the Red Sox dropped a 4-3 decision to the A's Saturday night in Oakland. Lackey, who hadn't succumbed to double-digit losses since 2006, allowed just two hits prior to giving up four hits in the pivotal seventh. Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard allowed the A's to claim an insurance run in the eighth when Jack Cust singled in Coco Crisp. Hideki Okajima came on for Bard with two outs in the eighth, getting out of a bases-loaded jam by inducing a ground out to third by pinch-hitter Matt Carson.

 

The Sox closed the gap to a run in the ninth when Victor Martinez ripped a two-out double off Oakland closer Andrew Bailey, and then proceeded to score on Adrian Beltre's bloop into center field, which put the third baseman in scoring position. But David Ortiz, pinch-hitting for Mike Lowell, took a called third strike on a full-count fastball to end the game....

Padres owner: Gonzalez won't be traded

San Diego Padres principal owner Jeff Moorad told Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com that the Padres will not be trading Adrian Gonzalez this offseason. The first baseman, who has long been of interest to the Red Sox, will become a free agent following the 2011 season if he does not sign an extension with the Padres. Rosenthal quoted Moorad as saying, "It's a foregone conclusion that he will be back with the team." 

 

Rosenthal reports that is still uncertain what will transpire after this offseason, with the 28-year-old most likely looking at something closer to Mark Teixeira's deal (8 years, $180 million) rather than a three-year contract with the same relative annual average.

 

Gonzalez is currently hitting .305 with a .394 on-base percentage, .512 slugging and 27 home runs. 

 

See below for Rosenthal's report:
