HumiliationNation: Sox Bumble Way To 9-2 Loss

It doesn't get much worse than this. Even Jerry Remy is calling it embarrassing on the air. The Red Sox parlayed crappy starting pitching, feeble offense and slipshod defense into a 9-2 boo-fest. The low-light of the game—and perhaps the season—was when third base was left uncovered, allowing a Pale Hoser to scamper there after a near-spectacular play by Xander Bogaerts. Suffice it to say that this was a real stinker of a loss—with Rick Porcello once again leading the way. The righty went just two innings plus—giving up six runs (five earned) on ten hits (including two HRs). The only bright light was 'probably soon-to be-traded' Mike Napoli who homered and drove in both Boston runs. The Red Sox are now an abysmal 14 games behind The Evil Ones In the AL East. Turn out the lights when you leave.
