The Miami Marlins dropped the second game of their interleague series against the Red Sox on Tuesday night in a low-scoring 2-1 affair. It was a relatively quick and uneventful game, with all three runs coming in the seventh inning. Mark Buerhle was solid for Ozzie Guillien, allowing just two runs on five hits. But the Sox strung together four of those five hits in the top of the seventh to put a two-spot on the board. Kelly Shoppach doubled home Will Middlebrooks and Mike Aviles knocked in Shoppach.
The Fish would cut the lead in half in the bottom of the inning as Logan Morrison led off with a blast to right. But Boston starter Clay Buchholz was undeterred, and quickly retired the side. Buchholz struck out nine in seven innings of work to snap a four-game game losing streak for Boston. Ricky Nolasco will try to win the series for Miami on Wednesday night.
