Ryan Dempster’s Solid Start Wasted in 2-0 Loss to Orioles

The Boston Red Sox did not have many chances to score in this game and were stymied by Chris Tillman and the Baltimore Orioles’ bullpen in the 2-0 loss on Friday evening. The Red Sox have now lost four of five game to the Orioles in 2013.

Ryan Dempster had his fourth straight quality start and ended up with his seventh loss of the season with a lack of run support. He lasted 7 2/3 innings while allowing five hits and two earned. He walked five and struck out four on 122 pitches.

Tillman got the win and gave up only three hits in his six-plus innings of work. He walked four batters to go along with three strikeouts.

The Orioles got on the board in the second inning on a solo shot from Chris Davis that just squeaked over the left field fence to make it 1-0 O’s.

With runners on first and third and two outs in the third, Adam Jones came to the plate and slow tapped a grounder to third. He was able to beat it out and Nate McLouth scored to make it 2-0.

The Red Sox had a chance in the fourth to get on the board. Jose Iglesias reached on a one-out bunt single to make it first and third with one down in the frame. Will Middlebrooks came up to the dish and promptly served a shallow broken-bat flyball to right that was not deep enough to score Mike Carp from third. David Ross struck out to end the inning.

In the seventh inning, Iglesias led off the inning with a double down the right field line. Tillman was pulled and Darren O’Day took over. O’Day was able to retire the next three Red Sox hitters in order to end the threat.

Jim Johnson came in to record his 24th save of the season. He hit Daniel Nava with one out, but Iglesias then grounded into the game-ending double play.

The Red Sox will look towards John Lackey to end the two-game slide against the Orioles on Saturday afternoon. He will face Freddy Garcia.
