The opposing team scores first...builds a decent lead...the Red Sox leave a bunch of runners in scoring position...and another loss gets recorded - in this case 7-2 at the hands of the Blue Jays at Fenway Park.
Melky Cabrera and Jose Batista went back-to-back in the top of the 1st inning off Boston starter Jon Lester, who somehow pitched into the 7th inning. Lester gave up 2 runs in that 1st inning and another 5 in the top of the 2nd inning. He gave up 10 hits and walked 2 while striking out 3.
Meanwhile, Mark Buehrle held the Red Sox in check during his 7 innings of work. Boston touched him for 2 runs on 7 hits. He didn't walk anyone and struck out 5.
Boston's runs came on a Jonny Gomes RBI single in the bottom of the 1st and a solo home run by Xander Bogaerts (pictured) an inning later.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
