Jacks All By A's, Master(Son) Of None, Sox Lose

This was a game game worthy of the pit that is the Coliseum. Justin Masterson went just 2 1/3 innings last night—coughing up six earned runs in the 9-2 blowout loss. He now carries a 7.26 career ERA at Oakland. Said Masterson, "Part of me wants to put it on the voodoo of the Coliseum. I never got close to getting comfortable." Dustin Pedroia got half of Boston's four hits, while Mike Napoli and Blake Swihart drove in the only runs for the Red Sox. Boston needs to win today's daytime tilt to avoid losing a series to one of the worst teams in baseball.
