Shelled-O-Cine Alfredo Sleepwalks To 13-0 Loss

It was one of those nightmarish innings that you've almost come to expect from Alfredo Aceves. Walks, balks, a missed assignment covering first—and a few minutes later, it's 6-0 in favor of the opponent. Aceves worked at a glacial pace as the few stalwart fans shivered in their parkas in a chilled rain. It was—in a word—maddening. When the dust settled, the Red Sox mustered only three singles off old buddy Bartolo 'Who, Me Juice?' Colon on their way to a 13-0 defeat. A forgettable night at Fenway Park.
