Red Sox Vs. White Sox Final Score: Chicago Loses 10-3

The Chicago White Sox lost 10-3 to the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night as starting pitcher Phil Humber struggled badly in his first outing since throwing the 21st perfect game in MLB history last week. Looking off from the beginning, Humber finished the day with easily his worst performance of the season so far.

Over five innings of work, Humber gave up nine runs on eight hits and two walks, with three different home runs making things especially difficult. A bullpen duo of Will Ohman and Zach Stewart combined to pitch four innings of one-run ball to end the game, but the damage had already been done at that point.

Chicago's offense was mostly stifled by Boston starter Felix Doubront, who gave up three runs over six innings. Boston reliever Junichi Tazawa was even better, striking out four batters while giving up just two hits over three scoreless innings to finish off the game.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia (two homers) and Kevin Youkilis (two singles, a homer, four RBI) led the way for Boston on offense. Paul Konerko had a pair of hits for Chicago, plus Dayan Viciedo hit his third homer of the season.
