Well, I guess the Sox couldn't trade for Roy Halladay before 1 p.m. yesterday.

Halladay pitched a complete-game six-hitter to beat the Sox, 3-1, on Sunday. Jon Lester pitched well in seven innings (five hits, three runs, four walks, six Ks) but it doesn't matter how good he pitches when there's no offense.

The Sox's only run came on a David Ortiz sac fly in the first inning. Dustin Pedroia scored.

Ortiz and Mark Kotsay each had a hit, but Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis led the team with two hits apiece.

Manny Delcarmen allowed just one hit in his 8th inning of work.

Losing a series to the Blue Jays to start the second half is not the way you want to get things started. The Sox can pick it up, though, if they travel to Texas and can win a 3-game series against the Rangers starting Monday. John Smoltz will be on the mound for an 8 p.m. start time.
