And the beat goes on. Your 2014 Carmine Hose fell to 12 games under .500 in an 8-3 pounding by the Chicago White Sox. The immortal Conor Gillaspie delivered the knock-out blow—a tie-breaking two-run, sixth-inning HR that set the tone for the day. David Ross succinctly summed up the 2014 campaign, '"When we do score runs, we haven't pitched the way we wanted to, and when we pitched the way we need to we haven't scored runs." Boston had tied the score 3-3 in the fifth on a Brock Holt triple, two doubles (Dustin Pedroia and Mike Napoli) and a single by Xander Bogaerts. All to no avail.
