San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Felix Doubront tossed eight outstanding
innings and received a wealth of offensive support as the Boston Red Sox
battered the San Francisco Giants, 12-1, to wrap up a three-game interleague
Doubront (9-6) bounced back from two straight shaky starts to limit the Giants
to a run on five hits and a walk, with the effort helping the Red Sox take two
of the set's three meetings following four losses in a five-game span.
Stephen Drew belted a three-run homer and Will Middlebrooks had a two-run shot
for Boston, while Jonny Gomes and Jarrod Saltalamacchia each contributed two-
RBI singles to the rout. Jacoby Ellsbury and Shane Victorino collected three
hits apiece and combined to score three runs.
Making his first start since July 30, Barry Zito (4-9) lasted just 3 2/3
innings and was roughed up for six runs on seven hits.
Joaquin Arias finished 2-for-3 for San Francisco and accounted for the Giants'
lone run with a solo homer in the second inning.
