Red Sox starting pitcher Ryan Dempster gave up just two earned runs on five hits and five walks in 7 2/3 innings Friday against the Orioles while striking out four but came away with his seventh loss of the season.
Dempster has walked 40 batters in 83 1/3 innings this season while posting a 4.21 ERA and 4-7 record. He'll face the Rays at home Wednesday.
With all the changes to the Boston rotation over the last couple of days, the Red Sox will move Ryan Dempster's next outing up from Saturday to Friday in Baltimore, WEEI.com reports Tuesday.
He will start on four days' rest. Dempster, who is 4-6 on the year with a 4.40 ERA over 13 outings, has gone 64-59 for his career on four days' rest with a 4.30 ERA over 178 starts.
