All you need to know, in quickie fashion, about the Red Sox' 5-1 loss to the Yankees complete with BSJ analysis and insight:



Weber struggles again: Making his second start of the season, Ryan Weber lasted just 3.2 innings and while he only allowed three runs, he walked four and gave up two homers in his short outing. "It's frustrating,'' said Weber. "Throughout my entire career I've always thrown strikes and stayed ahead. I'm just trying to be too fine. I had four walks today and I've never four walks in my entire life. And obviously, the home runs have been hurting me. But it goes back to not attacking the strike zone, they get comfortable, I'm walking guys and then one bad pitch leads to a two-run homer and then I'm in the hole from there.'' Manager Ron Roenicke believes Weber isn't pitching with much confidence, and that's demonstrated by him nibbling. Still, Roenicke gave no indication that Weber's spot in the rotation was in any immediate danger, noting the Sox didn't have better alternatives.

Valdez a bright spot once more:
