Another Nightmare at the Trop

The Red Sox can't find a way to win a big game at Tropicana Field. Jon Lester did his part in the game by giving up just 3 hits and 1 run in 6 innings but the bullpen could not hold the lead. Bard gave up a home run to Longoria in the bottom of the 8th to tie the game 2-2. The game then seesawed back and forth with both teams getting out of big jams; RR had bases loaded with nobody out but managed to pull a Dice-K like Houdini act to keep the game alive. The Red Sox had their chances but couldn't get a run across and in the bottom of the 13th Saito (the last bullpen pitcher for the Sox) gave up a walk-off home run to Longoria. The Rays found a way to stay alive in the game and now are alive in the division. A great game to watch but a tough loss for the Sox, especially if they don't bounce back tomorrow.

Yeah it sucked to lose that one, but look at it this way: coming into tonight's game, the Sox were 7-3 in their last ten.
