Vazquez outdueled
Photos
Red Sox 1, Braves 0
In his first Interleague start of the season, Javier Vazquez picked up the loss. (Kevin C. Cox/Getty)
It's an unfair game, but Javier Vazquez ended up on the losing end of a great duel. The righty struck out eight over 7 2/3 innings, but one run proved to be the difference in a tough loss for the Braves, who were held scoreless by Tim Wakefield.
