High-Flying Birds Humble Lowly Sox Again, 4-1

All you need to know about last night's Red Sox game is some guy named Alejandro De Aza hit two HRs—two. Surely, Chicago White Sox fans are waking up this morning and thinking, "Why can't we get players like that?". Compounding last night's problem was the fact that Anthony Ranaudo couldn't get out of the fourth inning—going 3.1 innings and giving up four earned runs in the 4-1 loss. Boston's "offense" was "paced" by Xander Bogaerts, who hit his 10th HR. So, The Carmine Hose are now 22.5 games behind in the division and they cannot finish at .500. On top of everything, The Valentine Magic Number is stuck at 7 with just 17 games to play.
