Brad Penny To The Rescue?

The Red Sox are back at the Fens to take on the last place Orioles but a victory is far from guaranteed. Boston will face Brad Bergesen who held them to 4 hits in 8 innings on July 1. Brad Penny will pitch for the Sox and he has been less than stellar lately. His last win came over a month ago and with Lugo gone he may become the new target of Red Sox Nation if he doesn't get it going tonight. The offense needs to get it going if Penny is going to get a W, check out these awful numbers courtesy of Hacks With Haggs:

Jason Varitek 6 (2-for-17) 2 walks, 5 strikeouts .118/ .211/ .176/ .387
Jason Bay 6 games (2-for-19) 5 walks, 7 strikeouts .105/ .292/ .158/ .450
Nick Green 3 games (1-for-10) no walks, 6 strikeouts .100/ .100/ .400/ .500
J. Ellsbury 4 games (1-for-16) no walks, 4 strikeouts .063/ .063/ .063/ .125
J.D. Drew 6 games (0-for-21) 3 walks, 7 strikeouts .000/ .125/ .000/ .125

All this and they will be wearing the FAILHATS; not really what the Sox need right now.
