BAL 11, BOS 10: Shocked

Even the best bullpen in baseball can have off days. This was just of the extreme variety.
Boston’s pen gave up 10 runs in just two innings pitched and the Baltimore Orioles mounted the best comeback in franchise history.
Justin Masterson handed out five runs, Hideki Okajima four and Takashi Saito one to total the 10-run out burst by the Birds.
The Red Sox had a 9-1 lead before a 1 hour and 11 minute rain delay. Boston tacked on another run on an RBI single by Dustin Pedroia in the seventh before witnessing a comeback for the ages.
Goat of the Game – Bullpen
That was just plain terrible including Masterson’s performance to come in and eat up innings after John Smoltz went four innings allowing one run on three hits, one walk and two strikeouts before the rain delay.
Next Game – 7/01 vs. Baltimore Orioles – Josh Beckett/Brad Bergesen
Beckett will bounce back with seven shutout innings.
