Matt Guerrier allowed 4 hits in his lone inning pitched with 4 runs coming in from those. 3 of the runs were charged to him while the other went to Dennys Reyes. A 2-run homer by Manny Ramirez and a wild pitch that advanced the runner from second to third were the killers. A soft base hit scored that runner who definitely would not have scored from second.


It was another wasted quality start, as Nick Blackburn went 6 and 2/3 innings and allowed just 2 runs.


Today’s game starts in about 15 minutes, with Livan Hernandez facing off against Red Sox ace Josh Beckett.
