Last Night’s Highlights
John Danks pitched 6.2 innings of scoreless ball (click on top link below) and back-to-back RBI singles by Jose Abreu and Melky Cabrera in the sixth inning broke a scoreless tie (click on second and third links below), but the Sox dropped the finale of the homestand to the Cardinals, 3-2. Danks allowed just five hits and struck out five. He now has a 2.25 ERA in July with three of those four starts scoreless outings.
