Light Stanchion 4, Red Sox 2 In Wasted E-Rod Start

Maybe if the Red Sox played in a modern, 21st-century ballyard, Fenway's 1940s-era light stanchion wouldn't have blinded rookie Andrew Benintendileading to another loss (4-2) to The Evil Ones. The catchable ball fell for a "double" and broke open another game Boston should have won—and would have with a decent bullpen. Eduardo Rodriguez had another solid outing—going seven innings and giving up just one run on three hits. This Red Sox team is on a treadmill to oblivion (thank you, Fred Allen)—and it seems that nothing can save them.
