Drew suffers hamstring tightness

Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew's availability in the late innings of Friday's 5-4 loss to the Giants was limited because his right hamstring, which has kept him out of the lineup for six games, tightened during a chilly San Francisco night. The outfielder informed manager Terry Francona that he was unavailable to play the outfield.

 

As a result, the Sox were unable to use him as a pinch-hitter for outfielder Darnell McDonald in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs and the bases loaded, since the need to move Bill Hall to second base in place of the injured Dustin Pedroia had left the club without a backup outfielder. McDonald grounded out to short to end the game, while Drew stood in the on-deck circle as a potential pinch-hitter for the pitcher's spot.

 

Drew had been scheduled to return to the lineup on Saturday, and Francona told reporters that he is still hoping that his outfielder will be able to return to the...

Sox loss to Giants doubly painful

Though the Red Sox mounted a spirited ninth-inning rally, putting four straight runners on base with two outs and pushing across a run, the uprising fell short when Darnell McDonald grounded out with the bases loaded to conclude a 5-4 loss to the Giants. The ninth inning was the third frame in which the Sox left the bases loaded, part of a night in which the team stranded 13 baserunners against San Francisco pitching.

 

That made a loser of Sox starter Tim Wakefield, who allowed four runs (three earned) in seven innings. Wakefield minimized the damage done by 11 Giants hits, but while he limited the workload on his bullpen, his record fell to 2-6 on a night when the Sox could not take advantage of 10 walks. After scoring three runs in the first on a Kevin Youkilis three-run homer (No. 15) against Giants starter Jonathan Sanchez, the Sox could do no further damage until the ninth, when their rally fell a run short.
