Sox beat up Jimenez, but Rockies win

Jason Giambi hit his fifth career walk-off home run, a two-run blast off of Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth inning, leading the Rockies to an 8-6 win over the Red Sox Tuesday night at Coors Field. Giambi, who was pinch-hitting, hit his homer after Ian Stewart had tied the game with a homer off of Papelbon on the second pitch of the ninth. It marked the first time in 23 chances this season that Colorado has claimed a win when trailing after seven innings.

 

The ninth-inning collapse ruined what had been a spirited comeback by the Red Sox, who touched up Colorado starter Ubalado Jimenez for four runs in the sixth inning. Leading the charge against the likely starter for the National League in the upcoming All-Star Game were outfielders Daniel Nava and Darnell McDonald. Nava got things going with a two-run double in the fourth, coming after the Rockies had managed to jump out to a 4-0 lead against Red Sox starter John Lackey....

He would make three or four rehab starts before returning to the Red Sox. Depending on how many rehab starts he makes, Beckett could be activated by late July or early August.

 

Here is some of what Beckett told reporters prior to the Red Sox' 8-6 loss to the Rockies Wednesday:

 

“Today felt good. Things are getting back to normal. It’s not like you’re trying to get past this, but not get too far. Today was much more normal. Go out and play catch, get on the mound and throw a side.”

 

(On throwing all his pitches) “My curveball was iffy. I threw some good...
