Red Sox 'Tip Their Cap' To Twinkies, Lose To Them, 4-3

Get used to it—Red Sox players "tipping their caps" to opponents who just beat them. Last night, it was Matt Barnes who gave the kudos to Joe Mauer—who walked-off the UConn Huskie in the 4-3 Twinkie win. It was another Raiders Of The Lost Offense night—until Chris Young's two-run pinch-hit tied it at 3-3 in the top of the ninth. Then, the bullpen that (for some reason) every analyst praises, let the team down again. This was another stinker of a loss for a team that is essentially a .500 ballclub. Again, get used to this, Sox fans. They're just not that good.
