Red Sox Comeback Falls Apart In 10th Inning, Lose, 7-4

About four hundred years ago, a guy named Johannes Kepler set down laws of planetary motion. Yesterday, a Minnesota Twin named Max Kepler almost put another planet into motion with his three-run, game-winning HR off Matt Barnes. The 7-4 extra-inning loss prevented what should have been a three-game sweep of the pathetic Twinkies. Instead, Boston will come home to face their co-tenant in first place—the Baltimore Orioles. The Red Sox clawed back yesterday from a 4-1 deficit, but could not overcome three un-earned runs off Rick Porcello. Xander Bogaerts and Chris Young (now hitting .299) each had two hits in the loss.
