GAME 79: RED SOX vs. RANGERS

This one started of well with Beckett in fine form and the Sox scoring 4 in the 1st 2 frames but then Beckett fell apart in the 4th allowing 4 runs on 5 hits and then gave up a homer in the 5th to Sosa. That was it, no other runs for the Sox as they stranded 9 and were 3-13 with runners in scoring position.

Jacoby Ellsbury was called up to play center as Coco is nursing a hurt thumb, it was his major league debut and he electrified the crowd by beating out a throw to first on a routine grounder for his 1st major league hit. A pretty pathetic game for the Sox to lose in a such an anemic fashion as they go 13-14 in June yet they remain 10.5 games in 1st place
