The White Sox dropped their third straight at Fenway Park, and pitching woes were once again the primary culprit. Starter Jon Garland allowed six runs in just 4 2/3 innings after issuing five walks and surrendering a pair of three-run home runs.
After scoring 21 runs in the previous two games, the Red Sox earned a series win with another impressive offensive performance. Manny Ramirez knocked in four runs and Mike Lowell added a three-run homer.
