Some Kind Of Blunder-Full; Sox One-Hit, 2-0

Just think, they have to face 'King Felix' Hernandez tomorrow night. The Red Sox were one-hit by Angel rookie Matt Shoemaker (not to be confused with Willie Shoemaker) in a sweep-filled 2-0 loss. Total humiliation was prevented by a two-out, seventh-inning double by Will Middlebrooks (who didn't even start the game). Yoenis Cespedes left early for "personal reasons"—rumored to be related to his Mom. Other rumors swirled around the ballpark (citing Cuban-based sources) that International Free Agent OF Rusney Castillo had signed with the Red Sox. Nothing has yet been confirmed. Rubby De La Rosa pitched well enough to lose—going 6.2 innings and giving up just the two earned runs and striking out eight.
