Your 2014 Carmine Hose now possess the second worst record in the American League—as the Houston Astros now have a better mark than The Olde Towne Team. Only the lowly Rays surpass Boston in ineptitude after yesterday's devastating 3-2, 11-inning loss to Cleveland. The defeat overshadowed another solid performance by Brandon Workman—who went six innings, yielding just two earned runs. But, Boston's bullpen failed again. Junichi Tazawa gave up a game-winning HR to old nemesis Nick Swisher and that's all she wrote. Brock Holt and Stephen Drew had two hits apiece to pace Boston's six-hit "attack". The Red Sox are now seven games under .500 and a full nine games off the pace in the AL East. Now, our goal should be to catch and pass the Astros juggernaut.
