There Goes The Season (74-58)
Last night the Red Sox lost 2-5 to the Orioles, and basically, if the Red Sox can't beat the Orioles, they can't beat anyone else. Josh Beckett was not bad, allowing 2 earned runs, and 3 in all in 7 innings, he is now 4-4/6.21/86. The Red Sox's two runs came on a 2 RBI home run by Jed Lowrie, who went 2-3 and is now .287/4/11 as he has been an above average replacement. Tonight, Jon Lester (14-8/3.12/176) and Jake Arrieta (4-5/4.90/37) will pitch. The Red Sox seriously need to win a lot of games if they want to make the playoffs.
