Bullpen Delivers Yet Another Red Sox Loss, 8-4 In Tampa

When one of the previously strongest links in a weak bullpen is no longer strong, you've got a real relief pitching problem. Such is the case with the Red Sox—where over-used Junichi Tazawa coughed up another loss in last night's 8-4 defeat at The MostPulpDome. Tazawa pitched one-third of an inning and gave up four earned runs—wiping out a 4-3 Boston lead. Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz, Travis Shaw and Pablo Sandoval all had multiple hit games in yet another excruciating, unacceptable loss.
