Lackey Gives Up 6, O’s Win 8-4
John Lackey got roughed up by Baltimore Friday night as the Birds beat Boston 8-4. Lackey allowed 6 runs over 5 1/3 innings on 10 hits. That’s back-to-back games Lackey has given up 6 runs.
Jonathan Schoop, a former Senior League World Series participant in Bangor, collected 4 hits on the night. The night included 2 doubles and 2 RBI.
The game also featured more instant replay controversy. The first play of the game, a double hit be Nick Markakis, looked like a foul ball down the leftfield line. Sox manager John Farrell appealed but umps said it was fair.
In the 7th inning, a bang-bang play at first went the Sox way. Brock Holt was ruled safe and umpires looked at the replay.
The Sox(7-10 and Orioles(8-7) play again today.
