Red Sox Offense Shuts Down, Fall To Devil Dogs, 3-2

Thank goodness for Jackie Bradley, Jr.'s bat. Otherwise, the Red Sox would have been shut out Sunday by the lowly Rays in a 3-2 loss at TheMostPulpDome. JBJ launched his 17th HR of the year—a two-run blast in the sixth. Otherwise—Raiders Of The Lost Offense again. Boston managed just three hits (two by Bradley) in the loss. Andrew Benintendi got the only other base knock. Eduardo Rodriguez pitched decently, but was hurt by costly errors. And, David Price pitched two perfect innings of relief. Austin Maddox continued his scoreless run streak with one-third of an inning of relief. On the downside, Mookie Betts suffered a right thumb contusion on a weird play at first base. Luckily, The Bronx Embalmers lost to the reeling Orioles—who The Carmine Hose will play tonight in Charm City.
