So, on a night when the offense actually shows some signs of life, the pitching completely falls apart.

Brandon Workman was roughed up for three runs in the top of the first inning - he didn't even get an out until he was 25 pitches into the inning - as the Chicago Cubs erupted for a 16-9 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park. The rout completed a sweep of the three-game series by the Cubs.
Workman lasted just four innings, charged with six runs on five hits (including two home runs) and a pair of walks. Once the parade of relief pitchers started, it just got worse. Felix Doubront, Burke Badenhop, Edward Mujica, Craig Breslow, and Junichi Tazawa combined for a pitching line of 5IP, 10R, 14H, but on the bright side they didn't walk anyone!

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).
