Yep. The losses continue to suck even more as time passes.
Felix Doubront was up & down all night. He gave up a leadoff home run to Jason Donald, who is now hitting .192 on the year, and managed to get out of a mess in the first. He then retired nine out of the next ten batters he faced. Then he can't manage to get anyone else out as the Indians manage to get three more runs off of him before Bobby V pulled the plug on Dubront's night with one out in the fourth. Maybe the workflow is finally starting to catch up to Doubront as this is his second straight struggling start. (Say that five times fast)
The offense was able to get some runners on base against Ubaldo Jimenez. Jacoby Ellsbury had himself a great night on the bases, as he stole three bases (which is the same amount that he has all season) and everyone except Carl Crawford got a hit but they just couldn't manage to manufacture many runs.
Adrian Gonzalez hit a two run homer and Dustin Pedroia got an RBI single but other than that Ubaldo was like a Belichick coached defense- bending but not breaking. He struck out ten in six innings and only walked one, which is a bit of a shock as he leads the league in walks.
The lowlight of the night though had to be in the seventh inning when the Sox had Pedro Ciriaco on second with Crawford at the plate and one out. Crawford hits a hard grounder to the shortstop and for some reason Ciriaco was running to third and got tagged out in a run down and then Crawford decided it was a smart idea to run to second and he also got tagged out for the inning ending double play. Yep, this is our team right now.
