Koji: By The Numbers
It had to end sometime! That time was Tuesday night against the O's. Koji Uehara gave up a hit, then a run and then took the loss as Baltimore beat the Sox 3-2 in the first game of the series. A reminder that tonight's game can be heard live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket. Coverage starts at 6:30PM.
