Offensive Interference

Just when you thought it was safe to trust John lackey again (7.2 innings, 2 ER, 5 Ks), the Red Sox bats continued their deep freeze and Boston fell to the Phillies (and some guy named Worley), 2-1.

Not only did Lackey pitch as well as he has in a Red Sox uniform, he knocked in the only run with a double to deep left-center. Are you kidding me? Only Josh Reddick (you know, the guy who should be starting in RF every day, that Josh Reddick), also delivered for the offense (2 for 3)—as the Sox fell 2.5 games behind the Evil Ones in the AL East. Look out, the Wild Card isn't that secure either—Tampa sits just one game behind Boston this morning.
