Sox Continue On Treadmill To Oblivion; Fall, 7-4

Bob Lobel had to have been taking the big red panic button out of mothballs—no wonder the Red Sox gave him a World Series ring yesterday. Your 2014 Carmine Hose dropped their fifth straight game—dropping to four games under .500—falling to the Blue Jays, 7-4. Edwin "Cut It Out" Encarnacion hit twin 2-run HRs that helped put Felix Doubront and the Red Sox in 6-0 hole early. Despite a decent "fight back" effort, Boston was no match for the Canadian Juggernaut from the Great White North. Doubront went just four innings (leaving the game with left shoulder fatigue), yielding five earned runs. The Red Sox were 3 for 14 with runners in scoring position—continuing their season-killing trend. On top of everything, Xander Bogaerts made two errors at short—just hours after being told he will now man third base. Way to mess with a 21-year old's head, Red Sox.
