Red Sox 'Stumble' Again In Detroit, Fall To Tabbys, 4-1

Even worse than suffering their second loss of the season, the Red Sox may have lost Jackie Bradley, Jr. for a while. On the final out of a 4-1 loss to Detroit, their star center-fielder tripped and stumbled around first base. While he initially looked OK and walked off the field under his own power, the team later said he had a hyper-extended knee. No word on missed time. Seemingly, the Red Sox are the Typhoid Marys of MLB—with sick or injured players almost outnumbering healthy ones. Today, Andrew Benintendi threw-up during the game. Eduardo Rodriguez was under-whelming in his first start—giving up four earned runs over five innings—including two HRs. The .500 Red Sox play two more games in The Motor City before returning home Tuesday.
