Offensive Indifference Again; Red Sox Lose, 3-0

Even the most pessimistic of us could not have foreseen that—after a 14-1 win on Monday—that the Red Sox might drop the next six games on this key road trip. And yet—after a 3-0 loss on Saturday night—that's exactly what the team faces on Sunday afternoon. John Lackey again pitched well enough to win—going seven innings and giving up just two earned runs—but the offense was non-existent (at least in terms of getting runners in). Eight different Red Sox players got one hit—as The Carmine Hose left nine runners on the basepaths. The team remains 10.5 games out of first and 7.5 games out of the second Wild Card spot. Earth to Ben—continue to dump!
