Here are the key take-aways from last night's 4-0 Boston loss: 1.) this is the 15th time this year that the Red Sox have be shut out by an opponent (that's exactly 10% of the games they've played); 2.) they were 0-10 with runners in scoring position; 3.) they left eight men on base. That pretty much sums up the 2014 edition of your Carmine Hose. Anthony Ranaudo lost his third start—going 5.2 innings and giving up three earned runs. In his first six MLB starts, he's coughed up 10 HRs. Xander Bogaerts continued hot in his post-concussion-list surge—getting two more hits. The Valentine Magic Number stays at 4.
