This one wasn't very pretty.  Yankees starter Freddy Garcia baffled Sox batters with his array of 70 and 80 MPH pitches, while Franklin Morales baffled no one.  The result: a solid 6-1 beating by the Yankees.

The Sox came out flat, aided by another huge 1st inning by the Yankees.  They jumped all over Morales, putting a quick 4 runs on the board.  Only this time, the Sox batters weren't able to respond.  Morales was yanked after 3 2/3 innings, on the hook for all 6 of the Yankees runs.

The one bright spot in this game was the gutsy performance by Justin Germano in his first appearance of the year.  He pitched the rest of the way for the Sox, striking out 7 Yankees and allowing zero runs with 5 hits.  I don't think we can expect this to be the norm for Germano, but the Sox should be able to ride his anonymity for a few games.

Red Sox batters managed 7 hits, but only one for extra-bases - a Shoppach double.  Mauro Gomez had his second consecutive multi-hit game with an RBI, accounting for the only run for Boston.

The good news is, the Sox have one more game to play today and tomorrow, so we can salvage this matchup.  The bad news is, we're tied for last place in the division with Toronto.
