'Drew Two' Flops, Injured Red Sox Limp To 6-4 Loss

Which is the most disturbing outcome of last night's 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays: a crappy, two-inning start by Drew Pomeranz; the game-removing injuries of Mookie Betts and Eduardo Nunez; the Magic Number being stuck at three with six games left? Take your pick, they all stink! Pomeranz clearly had nothing from the start—blowing a 2-1 lead in his second and final inning. The balky knee of Nunez and Mookie's injured left wrist make them both highly questionable for the balance of the regular season. An Empire win over KC dropped the division lead to four games. The only bright lights in the contest were: Betts going 2-3 and raising his RBI total to 101 before leaving; Andrew Benintendi's pinch-hit HR (which brought Boston to within one); seven pretty good bullpen innings. That's it.
