 The Boston Red Sox are 5-5 in their last 10 games.They lost 6-0 with only two hits in Monday nights game in Smoltz Fenway debut. The sox are sliding in the standings only in the lead by a game in fron of the New York Yankees.

Their lineup has taken some hits with Mike Lowell out until after the All-Star break. The Sox are also without Jeff Bailey and Mark Kotsay. Dustin Pedroia was out of the lineup on Monday night to be with his pregnant wife and there is no word yet if he will be back for Tuesday night's  game against the A's.

Josh Beckett takes the mound tonight looking for his 10th win. Beckett is 9-3 with a 3.67 ERA. Tonights game looks promising for the Red Sox with the A's pitcher from AAA Sacramento Dana Eveland who has as an ERA up over 18 against the Sox in only two starts. Hopefully if Beckett has a solid outing tonight it might spark  the Red Sox offense because if hitting does not improve they will be out of first in a matter of days.
