Doubront (1-0) allowed three runs -- two of them off his own error -- in the third inning, and he had given up just three hits through five before running into more trouble in the sixth. Ramirez led off with a single to center, and the next three batters also reached safely to make it 10-5 and chase Doubront.
In all, Doubront gave up three earned runs on six hits and two walks, striking out two in five-plus innings.
It was also Drew's first game against his former team since he controversially opted out of his contract after the 2006 season. He homered in the first inning -- it was originally ruled a double before the umpires consulted the replay -- but left in the third when he strained his right hamstring stretching for Ramirez's line drive.
Drew made the catch, but Darnell McDonald pinch-hit for him in the bottom half.
NOTES: To make room for Doubront on the roster, the Red Sox designated RHP Boof Bonser for assignment. Doubront was 6-1 record with a 2.11 ERA in 12 Double- and Triple-A starts. Bonser spent most of the season on the disabled list with a right groin strain, and he was 0-0 with an 18.00 ERA in two appearances.
