Bard went seven innings and only allowed 3 runs on 6 hits. He also struck out six batters. He gave up the first run in the first and then another in the third because of a throwing error and passed ball by Shoppach. The last run came in the fifth from a solo shot by Paul Konerko. The final score was 10-3 like the previous night against the Chicago White Sox. The Sox bats continued to perform well. Darnell McDonald had an awesome night when he launched a bases clearing double that placed the Red Sox in the lead 6-3 in the fifth. Later in the ninth, McDonald hit his first home run of the season and the last run of the night. Matt Albers relieved Bard and pitched two scoreless innings to keep the Red Sox on top.

It was a pretty cold night. McDonald was also sporting one of those head/neck warmers like Ross is.
