Red Sox Blow Yet More Leads, Fall To Pale Hose, 5-4

This time, they were up 2-1 and 4-2, and still managed to cough up the lead to Chicago in a another painful 5-4 loss. Instead of the bullpen, it was starter Wade Miley who failed to protect his own lead, yielding three earned runs in the seventh inning. The Boston offense was paced by Mookie Betts (2-4, RBI, 2 runs scored) and Pablo Sandoval (1-4, RBI, run scored). So many of this team's losses this year could easily have been wins—and this one is a perfect example. Frustration continued to reign in The Nation.
