Dice K is out with the flu, giving us Jon Lester on the hill instead to face the Angles.
Lester goes 5, giving up 4 runs and 9 hits, followed by Sleepyhead Craig Hansen, The Other Javy Lopez, and Bad Mike Timlin. Going into the bottom of the ninth, FRod gets two quick outs, protecting a 6-4 lead.
Given LA's bullpen troubles, I can kind of understand them going to him with a 6-4 lead.
FRod gets Pedroia on a groundout to send Boston to their first loss since, uh, Wednesday.
