Sox Streak Reaches 5 Games
It sounds like a broken record, John Lackey pitched well enough to win but....the Sox couldn't manage any offense and lose to Tampa Bay 3-0.Lackey went 8 innings for Boston allowing 3 runs on 8 hits but had no help from the offense that had just one extra base hit. Ben Zobrist hit a solo homer for the Rays while Kevin Kiermaier added two hits and an rbi.
The Sox have now been shutout 11 times this season.
Allen Webster has joined the team to get the start in today's series finale. Webster takes Jake Peavy's spot in the rotation after he was traded to the Giants.
