It's clear Roenis Elias is not the answer to the Red Sox starting rotation questions. After giving up seven runs in four innings and losing 8-4 to Seattle he was send back to Pawtucket.

It was not a pretty scene for Elias. He threw just 68 pitches. giving up seven hits and the three walks.

The lone bright spot for the Sox - David Ortiz hit his 521st home run, tying him with Ted Williams on the all-time list. It was his 18th this year.
