Henry Owens Fizzles, Red Sox Lose To Tribe, 8-2

Forget about that 82-80 miracle comeback—and maybe that third place finish. The Red Sox find themselves back in last place after an 8-2 punishing by the Indians. Rookie Henry Owens looked overmatched—going just 4 1/3 innings and giving up seven earned runs. Boston's only offense came from David Ortiz's two-run HR—his 37th on the year and 503rd of his career. Xander Bogaerts—who scored ahead of Ortiz on the HR—got one hit. That leaves him five shy of the 200-hit mark—with probably eight more at-bats in the season.
