Punchless Sox Fall To No-Name Empire Starter

It doesn't get much worse than this. The completely offense-free 2014 Red Sox couldn't get more than three hits off one of the worst starters in the American League (a stiff named Vidal "Sassoon' Nuno) in a 6-0 shellacking in the Bronx. Nuno's impressive recent resume included giving up a total of 13 runs in 9 1/3 innings to Oakland and Baltimore. Brandon Workman was way too rusty coming off his six-game suspension—going seven innings and giving up four earned runs (including two HRs). This was yet another stinker in a long line of stinkers this year.
