90 More To 100!

All those prognosticators might have been right. Only instead of 100 wins, the Red Sox are well on their way to 100 losses. In yet another inventive way to lose, they took a 3-0 lead—thanks to HRs by Pedroia and Youkilis—and managed to squander it by means of more bad pitching. Tonight it was Clay Buchholz, would could not go more than 5 innings, and gave up the three runs to tie the game. But the prize for futility has to go to Bobby Jenks, who coughed up 4 more earned runs in just one-third of an inning. Final score, 7-6. Mercy. Record: 2-10. Double mercy.
