Dog Day Loss

It's July folks. Technically every game counts the same...Opening day, a Sunday afternoon game in May and July 3rd...they are all just one of the 162. But, as we enter the dog days, those one run loses seem to hurt a little more. In April we would just shrug this on off. In July we feel the lost opportunity a little longer...nothing tragic, but a game that the Sox had in their sights and let slip away.

Things went wrong in the 4th when Youk was obstructed by a fan reaching for a ball in the seats. The Sox could have extinguished a Mariners rally at that point, but it was not to be.

The game entered extra innings. The Sox had their chances, but couldn't deliver. M's win 7-6 in the 11th.

It's tough to drop a close one to the M's in July. If it was April, I'd be over it by now. In July it hurts a little. I'm glad it's not September.
