☼ Sun - Jones - his three run bases clearing double was the nail in the coffin.
☁ Cloud - Okajima who once again gave up four runs in an inning in Baltimore. This time, he earned all the runs.

Game thoughts!

A quick moving game until the 8th inning. Wakefield was absolutely good, and after the Sox scored a run in the top of the 8th to take a 3-2 lead it looked like he might be able to get a win on this road trip. Was not meant to be though as Okajima coughed it up pretty quickly.

Before the 8th I was thinking that you would have to give big atta boys to both Cash, who doubled home Alex Cora in the seventh on a hit and run that tied the game. Then when the Sox took the lead in the eighth I thought that this game was in the bank and the Sox would be able to have a respectable road trip. Not meant to be though.

4-6 on this road trip and Papi goes on the DH, not a whole lot of good came out of this trip.

Factoid - The Sox have yet to sweep a road series this year.

♊ - Morbid and creepifing I can handle as long as we do it quiet like.
