Sox can't complete sweep
Devil Rays 6, Red Sox 5
Daisuke Matsuzaka struck out five and walked three in six innings. (Elise Amendola/AP)
 Varitek's two-run homer
 Lugo's RBI double
 Ramirez's RBI double
Maybe Tuesday night's walk-off win took a lot out of the Red Sox, because it's hard to explain how Tampa Bay righty Andy Sonnanstine limited Boston's offense to just four hits. Plus, Daisuke Matsuzaka was off his game, as the right-hander gave up six runs during his six innings of work.
