Walk-Accine Alfredo

The Red Sox lost tonight for one simple reason: Alfredo Aceves walked 5 straight batters after getting the first two outs in the second inning. The Sox bullpen gave up the game winner, but it was Aceves' meltdown that decided the game—which the Sox ultimately lost, 5-4.

The loss overshadowed Kevin Youkilis' 4-5 performance and the first stolen base by Papi in 3 years. The Empire was rained out, so the Sox are just 1 game up in the AL East.
