Felix Doubront struck out a career high eleven, giving up just one run in seven innings in a 2-1 no decision win over the second-place Orioles. Cody Ross knocked in Dustin Pedroia with the winning run in the eighth inning to gain the victory—while Andrew Bailey delivered yet another cliff-hanger save. The win, coupled with another Toronto loss, gives the Carmine Hose a full 1.5 game cushion over our cousins to the North. On another note—apropos only of 2013—John Lackey hurled two innings in an intra-squad game today in Florida. He had three strikeouts, and gave up no hits and no walks.
