Sox' woes against O's continue in loss

The Red Sox suffered their first three-game sweep in Baltimore since 1974, dropping the finale of their series by a 3-2 count in 10 innings. The Orioles enjoyed their second walkoff win in three days when Ty Wigginton drove the game-winning double to deep left-center against Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, allowing Nick Markakis to score from second. The Orioles are now 4-2 against the Sox, and 3-16 against the rest of baseball.

 

The Sox wasted an excellent effort by starter Josh Beckett, who allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings. Beckett struck out six and walked none. But despite his second quality start of the season, he was left with a no-decision.

 

The only offense that the Sox received was courtesy of a pair of solo homers from Jason Varitek and J.D. Drew, both of whom have now gone deep five times this year. With the loss, the Sox dropped to 1-5 in extra inning games.

Wallace picked up three quick fouls in the first half and went 1-for-5 in 13 minutes of Game 1 against the Cavaliers. He was also a liability again on the defensive end where his rotations were slow and his help defense was lacking. “He has to play better, bottom line,” Doc Rivers said Sunday. Could that mean a chance for Shelden Williams? Read the full post on Green Street.
