Rookie Anthony Ranaudo (pictured), pitching against the team he rooted for as a kid growing up in New Jersey, suffered his first career loss, giving up three runs in 5.1 innings. He walked a pair and struck out one in the loss as his record fell to 3-1.

Boston's offense managed just six hits off three New York pitchers with Daniel Nava leading the team with two singles. Brock Holt had an RBI double in the sixth providing the only Sox run of the game.
