Varvaro Is Latest Sox Hurler Implosion; Fall, 2-1

Another gut-wrenching loss at the pathetic MostPulpDome puts the Red Sox in a three-way first-place tie with the Yankees and Jays. The 2-1, ninth inning walk-off was due to—you guessed it—crap relief pitching (Anthony Varvaro). Clay Buchholz turned in a gem for six innings—giving up just one earned run on two hits while striking out ten. But, tonight, it was a lack of offense that also killed the Sox—managing just three measly hits off Rays pitching. It's the first series loss for Boston and—at 9-7—they go into Baltimore for a big three-game set.
