Two more losses and the Red Sox will be "teeing it up" for October—enjoying the beautiful Fall golfing season only New England can deliver. After Punch and Judy-ing out five hits, the Red Sox were beaten in the rubber match with the Evil Ones, 2-0. Given the opportunity to lodge the Pinstriped Posers firmly in second place after an afternoon Orioles victory, Boston sleep-walked into defeat for the 13th time in 15 games. Felix Doubront gave up just two runs on four hits in 6 1/3 innings, but his mates managed only one extra base hit (Pedro Ciriaco's double). On to the Great White North for the Stupor Bowl.
