The Sox held tenuous one-run leads of 2-1 and 3-2 in the late innings yesterday, but ended up losing 5-3 in extras. Blergh.
The good news is De La Rosa pitches today and he has been a bright, bright star in a dark, dark season. Peacock will oppose him and the two last-place teams will continue to be last-place teams. Damn Tampa Bay for pulling off a surge the Red Sox could only dream of.
