Lenny DiNardo?

When you have Daisuke Matsuzaka going up against Lenny DiNardo, and Dice-K gives up 2 runs in 7 innings, you should pretty much expect to win, right?

Well, not last night. Sox castoff DiNardo, who the A's claimed on waivers when the Sox had to make room for J.D. (.224) Drew on the 40 man roster, shut out the Sox for six innings, despite being in and out of trouble and walking 6. He was helped by the Red Sox hitting into five double plays. Lenny was followed by a succession of relievers, including old friend Alan Embree, who got the save.

The Sox have now lost 5 of their last 6, including 3 in a row for the first time all season. You knew they were going to go through a bad stretch, but what is frustrating is that the last three games have been very winnable. I'm sure the Sox will pull out of this slump soon enough. Hopefully, Wake can regain his early-season form tonight and stop this little losing streak.
