Boston loaded the bases with one out in the second, but Danks (7-6-1-3-5, 103) fanned Bill Hall and got Darnell McDonald on a force out. A single by Hall, a walk to McDonald and Marco Scutaro's single gave the Red Sox a run in the fifth, but the 2-3-4 hitters squandered a chance at a big inning. J.D. Drew flew out to center, Victor Martinez flew out to left, and Adrian Beltre lined to left.
