helped out by Jonathan Papelbon who recorded his 7th save.  The loss was charged to Huston Street(0-1) in relief.

SG's manager was in a contemplative mood after the tough loss, 'It is really a pisser to lose this kind of a game.  
It may seem weird to some, but it is easier to take the occasional blow-out loss.  It is the ones that just
barely get away that hurt so much - like this one!'
