Sox Beat O’s and Split Series in Rain Shortened Game

The Red Sox have the 11:00am start on Marathon Monday, so players on both teams probably showed up exhausted to the ballpark.  The Sox had Justin Masterson on the mound vs. Wei-Yin Chen for the O’s.  Not only was it an early start, but it was a rainy, windy, cold day out at the park.  The Sox were able to battle through behind Masterson’s strong start and breeze to the win...

The game stayed scoreless until the 3rd inning when the Sox would give...
