1 Boston, 0 Detroit

Jarrod Saltalamacchia came through after the 26 minute rain delay, with a big wall ball double in the 8th to drive in Clutch Crawford from first. That's about all that happened and we beat the Tigers 1-0.

It was a pitchers duel last night between Clay Buchholz and the Tigers Phil Coke. Clay pitched great although he threw 127 pitchers. He gave up 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 7. Bard picked up the win after pitching a perfect 8th. Papelbon made it interesting after giving up a leads off double to Victor Martinez, who was pinch run for by Andy Dirks. Dirks was stranded at 3rd after Pap retired the next 3 batters to get his 8th save.

The rain definitely benefited the Red Sox as it took Phil Coke off the mound. He was absolutely cruising and had only thrown 78 pitches through 7 innings.

The Sox are now 22-20 and have won 5 straight.
