The Carmine Hose got to 10-game-winner Max Scherzer early—scoring two runs in the first. Unfortunately, Red Sox pitching gave back 10 and, viola', Scherzer was 11-0 and Boston was a 10-3 loser. Rookie Allen Webster gave up 5 runs on his own in just 4 1/3 innings—the second straight bad outing for one of the centerpieces of The Great Punto Deal. The 16th HR from David Ortiz was pretty much the only highlight of this game. Boston finishes up with Detroit on Sunday, then comes home to face the Rockies on Tuesday—with someone other than Clay Buchholz starting.
