In order to make room for Sean Casey, who came off the DL today, the Red Sox designated Julian Tavarez for assignment, essentially releasing the utility pitcher. Tavarez was a big part of the '07 Championship team, but this season he was a massive failure.

Tavarez will go down in Red Sox history as the guy who started a fight in a spring training game with Tampa, the guy who gave pitching advice to Daisuke Matsuzaka, and the air traffic controller of the infield.

Five days after pitching 8 shutout innings in Detroit, Tim Wakefield threw 2.2 innings and allowed 7 runs in Minnesota. Wakefield let up homers to Craig Monroe and Adam Everett. He left the Sox with a 7-1 deficit.

But give credit to the club. They made a game out of it. The bullpen did a decent job of keeping the Twins from pulling too far ahead (although Timlin gave up another Monroe homer).

The offense did their part. Coco had a triple and a homer. Kevin Cash was 2 for 4. Alex Cora was 3 for 4, lowering his average to .857. Drew, Youkilis, and Ortiz each had 2 hits.

But the hole was simply too big for the Sox to dig out of.
