Ricky Nolasco and Mother Nature stopped the Red Sox from completing a three game sweep against the Marlins.
Nolasco allowed just one hit through the first five innings while Dan Uggla and Ronny Paulino both homered to beat Boston 2-1 in a rain shortened six inning game.
Kevin Youkilis had the only hit for Boston – a solo shot in the first – and Jon Lester dropped to 5-6 on the season with the loss.
Lester gave up two runs, both homers, eight hits, no walks and four strikeouts.
Goat of the Game – Weather
It’s tough to say how far Nolasco would have pitched but he was dealing last night.

Next Game – 6/19 vs. Atlanta Braves – Kenshin Kawakami/Daisuke Matsuzaka

Dice-K needs a solid outing here against the Braves.
