'Unoffensive' Red Sox Drop Another To Twinkies

Apparently, the Red Sox need longer rain delays—or maybe just flat-out cancellations. After a one hour and twenty-minute delay (hey, why should Minnesota have a retractable roof?), Boston eked out a 2-1 loss to the Twinkies. On this night, it was not the pitching that failed them—although Clay Buchholz did give up two maddening early runs. No, it was once again, "Raiders Of The Lost Offense"—with Mike Napoli's broken bat bloop single the only RBI The Carmine Hose could muster. When Sandy León is your offensive stud (2 hits), you've got issues.
