Team Of Negative Destiny Loses Again; Fall, 3-2

Some wise sage once said, "In every baseball game, you see something you've never seen before." It happened again last night as the Red Sox were on the verge of a ninth-inning comeback in their eventual 3-2 loss to the Pirates. With none out and men on first and third, a Will Middlebrooks grounder hit the runner at third in fair territory. That's an out, by the way. We've never seen that exact play ever before. Amazing. Of course, former Red Sox pitcher Mark Melancon got out of the jam. That's all you really need to know about this loss. Except that The Valentine Magic Number is still stuck at 4 with just nine games left.
