Well, they finally lost four in a row—and three straight to their 2013 ALCS foes. The Red Sox fell to three games under .500, with a decisive 6-2 loss to Detroit on Sunday night. Leading for the first time in the series (1-0), Boston saw Jake Peavy give back three quick runs on RBIs from Miguel Cabrera (single) and former Carmine Hoser Victor Martinez (two-run HR). Xander Bogaerts had two hits and an RBI in the loss. That was pretty much all she wrote in the kind of 'rocking chair loss' that is beginning to characterize this ballclub.
