The offense struggled once again Wednesday night, managing only one run on seven hits.
For the first time in over a week, the Boston Red Sox have fallen back to .500 thanks to a three-game losing streak in their finale against the Toronto Blue Jays and their first two of the series against the Baltimore Orioles. The Sox more recently spoiled a fine start from Josh Beckett, who went 8 innings and allowed just two runs in the team’s 2-1 loss to the O’s last night.
Their offense could muster only one run against Baltimore’s Wei-Yin Chen, who went seven innings and allowed seven hits to Boston.
The offense squandered chance after chance against Chen, hitting him hard and then subsequently stranding runners on-base. The game went quickly due to each pitcher’s success, and from a fan’s standpoint was quite boring. It seemed like the fans knew how boring the game was going to be prior to the game, arriving around the third and fourth innings to finally fill Fenway Park. Or maybe the fans are simply catching on to the Sox poor play of late and showing their remorse as a result. Whatever the answer, Sox fans aren’t happy; nor should they be.
Sox players, however, are remaining optimistic. ”A good series can change things around, which is a good thing,” designated hitter David Ortiz said. ”It’s the positive way to see things. We’ve just got to come back and try to win tomorrow.”. After the Orioles, the Sox welcome the Washington Nationals to town for a three-game series before heading to Miami to play the Marlins. If they can win the finale against the O’s and win two-of-three against the Nationals and M’s, they should be in good shape. If not, they could fall even farther back in the AL East -Ryan Hartley
