The Red Sox bullpen failed late as the Marlins came from behind to beat Boston 5-4 at Marlins Park in Miami.
Leading 4-3 in the ninth Junichi Tazawa allowed the tying run on a sacrifice fly. In the tenth, Craig Breslow allowed a leadoff triple and a one-out single that plated the winning run.

Mookie Betts (pictured) had three hits and a pair of RBI's, and Jackie Bradley Jr. had two hits and scored twice as the Red Sox beat the Marlins 4-3 at Marlins Park in Miami.
Steven Wright pitched two batters into the sixth inning in the no-decision, allowing two runs on five hits and an equal number of walks while striking out four.
Boston took a 1-0 lead in the third inning on a triple by Bradley and a single by Betts. The duo went back to work in the fifth when Bradley singled and came in on a double by Betts who was back in the lineup after suffering a concussion when he fell into the Red Sox Fenway bullpen in late July.
The Sox upped the lead to 4-0 in the sixth on a wild pitch and an RBI triple by Rusney Castillo.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
