Red Sox Miss Point After, Fall To Halos, 14-13

In the long string of frustrating 2012 losses, this has got to be right up there with the Great Nine-Run Yankee Collapse. Staked to a 6-0 lead in the second inning, Franklin Morales could not hold it. His comrades in the bullpen weren't much better as they subsequently lost other leads. The most gut-wrenching of these were 9th and 10th inning leads blown by "closer" Alfredo Aceves. The final was 14-13. The Sox offense kept coming back, the pitching kept letting them down. Essentially, this is the story line of your 2012 Carmine Hose.
