TORONTO - Just one of those terrible days for the Red Sox.

On a pristine day here at Rogers Centre, the Sox pitching has been complete chaos. Starter Jon Lester lasted 2-1/3 innings, eight hits, seven runs and Chris Smith didn't fare much better - four runs so far here in the fifth. Mike Timlin, who makes his 1,050th appearance, tying him for 7th all-time with Kent Tekulve, has come on to pitch.

The Sox haven't been able to handle Vernon Wells, who has hit two homers, Lyle Overbay, who has knocked in three runs, or Kevin Mench, who has three hits.

With Daisuke Matsuzaka pitching tomorrow, might be a long weekend for the Sox pen.

It's 11-0 Toronto in the sixth.
