It was a bad 14th inning for Red Sox relief pitcher Mike Timlin on Wendesday night. Timlin gave up a three run home run to Carlos Pena and the Tampa Bay Rays went onto beat the Red Sox 4-2 and extend their lead in the division to 2.5 games.
Timlin of course took the loss and it was too bad because the Red Sox pitching staff was pretty good the rest of the night. Josh Beckett tossed six innings while allowing six hits and one run. Beckett struck out seven Rays batters but ended up with a no decision due to the lack of run support from the offense.
Dustin Pedroia had the first rbi for the sox in the third inning when he doubled to left field and Jed Lowrie scored. The sox would not score again until the bottom of the 14th inning when they loaded the bases but were only able to score one run. Kevin Youkilis hit a rbi sac fly to right field for that rbi.
So now the Red Sox will be off on Thursday and then start up a weekend series with the Toronto Blue Jays who have been playing some awesome baseball lately. It will be a tough series that is for sure.
