Here's what you need to know about this game: Brent Lillibridge, one of the guys the Sox traded Youkilis for, who they then flipped to Cleveland for virtually nothing, had three hits (including a home run). The entire Boston Red Sox organization had 4 hits.
Morales, like Buchholz before him, limited Cleveland to 2 hits. Unlike Clay, he wasn't exactly dominating. While he struck out 6 batters, he also walked 4 and was tagged for 3 runs. And he only lasted 5 1/3 innings. Melancon, Breslow and Mortensen finished the game, with Malancon and Breslow each getting tagged with a run.
Of Boston's 4 hits, Ellsbury had 2 (both doubles). Gonzalez had 1 (two-run double), and Pedroia had the other. The good news is that the Sox didn't leave too many men on base tonight, because no men were getting on base. The Sox lineup wasn't even having good at-bats. Just a poor effort on the back of a season of poor efforts.
I'm not even angry at this point. I'm just sad. What a waste.
