Boom! Goes the Dynamite -- AKA Manny Delcarmen -- in Red Sox Loss

Manny Delcarmen, you just stunk tonight.

Delcarmen surrendered five runs on four hits in the 8th inning tonight without allowing a hit, allowing the Rays to go on and beat the Red Sox, 9-4. Manny D entered the game when the Rays were up 3-1 and he left with it 8-1 and no more outs recorded.

If you want to blame someone, you can blame him.

In fact, his WPA tonight was -.141. (That was almost as bad as this just a few days ago.)

Meanwhile, Daisuke Matsuzaka put together a solid start. He went six and allowed just three runs, four hits and four walks while striking out seven. He did his little Houdini act as well, but that's why we love, Dice-K, right?

David Ortiz paced the offense by going 2 for 3 with three RBI on the night. Adrian Beltre had the other RBI while Marco Scutaro also had two hits.

Scott Atchison continued to pitch well out of the pen, striking out one in his inning of work in the 7th. Ramon Ramirez allowed three hits and a run through two innings of relief work.

No sweep for the Red Sox this time, as they are forced to take the two-game split with the Rays. Fortunately, Felix Hernandez made the Yankees look like minor leaguers as he two-hit them tonight in a complete-game effort. Hooray for the Yankees losing.

The Red Sox are off tomorrow (oddly enough) and open a series with the Orioles Friday night.
