Javier Vazquez struck out 10 through the first five innings, but the right-hander came up short against the Red Sox and their rookie southpaw, Kason Gabbard. The offense managed just four hits and hit into three double plays, squashing any chance for a significant rally. The South Siders have lost three in a row and five of six to fall 1 1/2 games back for the Wild Card.
Rookie lefty Kason Gabbard tossed seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits and striking out six for his first Major League win as the Red Sox beat Chicago for the second straight night. Coco Crisp drove home the game's only run, while David Ortiz went 0-for-3 in his return to the lineup.
