BALTIMORE — Lefthander Felix Doubront, who had only a slim chance of making the Red Sox postseason roster, Sunday pitched his way into spectator status with a rough outing against the Orioles.
Doubront faced 12 batters and eight of them reached base. He allowed five runs on five hits, two of them doubles, in a game the Red Sox lost, 7-6.
“Lot of pitches on the plate. They bunched some hits together,” manager John Farrell said.
Doubront entered in the fourth and got through that inning giving up only a walk. But with the Red Sox up, 5-0, Doubront allowed five hits and two more walks in the fifth. J.J. Hardy and Nate McLouth had RBI doubles. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
