RED SOX LOSE A SQUEEKER
After winning 1-0 Saturday afternoon, the Red Sox found themselves on the opposite end of a 1 run scoreline. Brad Penny was as solid as Brad Penny can be, going 6, allowing 2 homers, but both were solo shots.
The Red Sox lineup was silenced by Tommy Hanson, which actually isn't something to be too ashamed of. The 22 year old righty is 4-0 with a 2.48 ERA. He's no slouch.
And when it comes to 1 run games, you win some, you lose some. As inane as that cliche is, it's true here.
The Sox continue their road trip with a stop in Baltimore. Weren't we just there? Jon Lester faces Jason Berken, who is 1-4 with a 6.32 ERA. Getting shutout by him would be something to be ashamed of.
