I'll do my best to forget this lost weekend in Texas.
Before I do:
9 home runs allowed by Red Sox starters (4 by Clay Buchholz in Sunday's 5-1 loss), 11 homers by the staff, almost no clutch hitting, Jonathan Papelbon up to his old tricks in the 8th, allowing a run and loading the bases with no outs before striking out the side.
Take nothing away from the Texas Rangers. They outscored the Sox, 26-11, and outplayed them in all facets of the game all weekend and lived up to their defending American League Champions title.
We've been in 0-3 holes before as you know. (Last time in the regular season: 1996. Postseason: 2004.)
Hopefully the Red Sox show up in Cleveland against the Indians on Tuesday night.
They sure as hell didn't in Arlington this past weekend.
