There were two games with the White Sox in Boston on Saturday in some glorious weather, after Hurricane Earl blew through the region on Friday.
So what do we get? Two 3-1 losses. No life in 18 innings at the plate. It was the first time since 1976 that the Red Sox have scored just one run in both ends of a twinbill.
Despite Tampa Bay's loss in Baltimore, the Red Sox are now...oh, why bother.
Time to concentrate on football now.
But I will forever respect Mike Lowell. Turns out he's been playing with a broken rib since August 20th. He continues to be the dictionary definition of a professional baseball player.
