Sox Lose Three Out Of Four With Chicago
It has been tough times, of late, on the road for the Boston Red Sox and that didn’t change on Labor Day as Josh Beckett and the Red Sox were laboring to try and turn the tide but fell victim to Mark Buerhle and the White Sox by the final of 5-1.
Beckett rebounded from his poor previous four starts but still received the loss as Beckett fell to 0-2 with a 7.76 ERA in his last five starts. The Red Sox have lost four of their last six contests. Old friend, Mark Kotsay, took beckett deep on Monday, hammering a two-run single in the bottom of the third to snag Chicago a 3-1 lead. Carlos Quentin put the Sox away with a two-run blast in the eighth to seal the series for Chicago.
Kevin Youkilis had the lone RBI for the local nine, driving in Jacoby Ellsbury in the first inning. Looking to fix their problems, the Sox head home to face the AL East bottom-dweller Baltimore Orioles as Clay Buccholz takes the mound against David Hernandez of the O’s.
