Sox Lose Another Game—And Possibly Mookie

Pedro Martinez (whose #45 was retired at Fenway last night) gave up just four first-inning runs in all of 1999. Wade Miley gave up five earned runs in one inning last night. This difference tells you all you need to know about the 2015 Carmine Hose. Boston lost again—this time a 9-6 drubbing by the once-crappy Chicago White Sox. On top of everything, the Red Sox may have lost CF Mookie Betts—who made a spectacular catch tumbling into the bullpen, which was later reversed into a HR. All in all, a really bad night to honor Pedro.
