Red Sox shortstop Julio Lugo can't cleanly control a third inning throw from pitcher Jon Lester, as they tried to turn a 1-6-3 double play on a ball hit by Oakland's Shannon Stewart. Lugo thought he recovered in time to get the force, but 2B umpire Gary Darling ruled he was still juggling the ball, and everyone was safe.
