Sox Eviscerated Again, But Papi Nine Away From 500

Believe it or not, there was a point in this game when the score was tied 4-4. Then, the "mighty" Marlins erupted for ten runs in the sixth inning—paced by rookie catcher J.T. Realmuto's grand slam. Realmuto drove in six runs on the day in the eventual 14-6 laugher. No wonder they released Jarrod Saltalamacchia! In any event, David Ortiz clouted two more HRs (490, 491)—puting him him just nine shy of the magic 500-mark. Eduardo Rodriguez, Ryan Cook and Robbie Ross Jr. took the brunt of the Miami barrage, but the bottom line is this was yet another stinker in a long line of 2015 stinkers. Change needs to happen—and soon!
