MANNY PASSES EDDIE MURRAY, NOT ENOUGH FOR SOX TO BEAT O'S
JD Drew and Manny Ramirez went back-to-back in the 5th, but it wasn't enough. Beckett once again looked mediocre, but didn't pitch horribly. He scattered 8 hits, but only allowed 4 runs in his 6 innings.
Hideki Okajima has been nowhere near as good as he was last season. He got his 6th blown save last night. He only had 2 in '07. His ERA isn't bad at 2.89, but factor in the amount of inherited runs scored he's allowed and it's safe to say he's been a bit of a disappointment in 2008.
