Tonight’s attendance: 16,210.
It’s loud here, and only because the Red Sox have taken a 9-5 lead.
Mark Hendrickson is charged with three runs in the seventh, and Alfredo Simon served up three more on Adrian Beltre’s homer.
Simon hasn’t pitched since Aug. 24, when he gave up a run and three hits in one inning against the White Sox. Manager Buck Showalter told reporters a few days ago that Simon was fine physically, and the right-hander threw after last night’s game to stay sharp.
He’s throwing batting practice tonight.
Update: Adam Jones must have been shaken up while making a catch against the fence in center field. Jake Fox pinch-hit for him.
Update II: Jones left the game with upper-back soreness. I’m guessing he’s day-to-day.
