Red Sox Shut Out For Ninth Time, Fall to M's, 4-0

Three times this month and nine total times on the year, your 2017 Carmine Hose have been skunked. Last night, it was a 4-0 whitewashing by the Mariners—who limited Boston to just four hits. Eduardo Rodriguez was once again mediocre—going 5.1 innings and giving up all four runs on another high pitch count (99 pitches) night. There was no offense to speak of—although Jackie Bradley, Jr. did get 50% of Boston's hits. Speaking of percentages, Boston has been shutout 8.9% of the time. The nine blankings is an MLB record this year. The loss cut Boston's lead over the idle Evil Ones to just two games.
