Red Sox Offense Disappears Again, Fall to Dodgers, 3-0

If only you could "carry over" four runs or so from a 9-0 win. Boston's on-again, off-again offense was way off today—and Eduardo Rodriguez was hammered for eight hits and three runs over just 4.1 innings—in a 3-0 loss to the Dodgers. The Carmine Hose could muster just five hits—Mookie Betts collecting two of them—and went 0-4 with runners in scoring position (leaving seven men on base). The bullpen delivered 3.2 innings of shutout ball, but it just wasn't enough to overcome the lack of hitting. The team is now 5-5 on the roadtrip—and needs a win on Sunday from David Price to make it a "success".
