Yes, that's how bad it was at Fenway on Friday night. Bengie Molina hit for the cycle (and got hurt for his trouble getting the triple in the 8th with a leg muscle injury) on a ball that hit off Eric Patterson's glove in center.
The Apocalypse is upon us.
Some stiff named Fernando Cabrera gave up a grand slam to Molina in the fifth, as Texas won another 8-4, and the Red Sox looked like a team playing out the string again. Felix Doubront again didn't pitch badly, but his two fielding errors really hurt the Red Sox.
The lack of quality players, especially in the bullpen, is really catching up with this team. The Red Sox are now 6 1/2 back in the East and falling, as New York beat Tampa Bay tonight.
And Cliff Lee waits in the wings tomorrow night.
