If you're the home team at Fenway Park and you score six runs, you're supposed to win. Yesterday—thanks to a horrible performance by starter Clay Buchholz—the Red Sox ended up scoring six and losing 7-6 in extra innings to the 19-hit Brewers (AKA The New Harvey Wallbangers). Buchholz—a complete 180 degrees from his 2013 early season—stunk up the house in 4.1 innings, giving up 13 hits and 6 earned runs. The bullpen was nearly perfect—failing in the 11th inning when Burke Badenhop yielded the winning run. So, Boston is now 2-3 through the first five—on pace for their 2012 total of 65 wins. Yikes!
