An ugly, ugly loss. That's all I can say.
If you watched it, you know what I mean. If you didn't, there's another game Wednesday night. Focus on that one.
Leo Nunez (2007 debut) / Tim Wakefield (4.47, 100 ERA+)
RHP Nunez pitched with the Royals in 2005 and 2006, but never made a start. He's pitched at Fenway Park twice (August 3 and 4, 2005), allowing 5 runs in 1.1 innings.
On August 4, Nunez entered the game with two outs and the bases loaded. He gave up a bases-clearing double to Edgar Renteria. Then he walked David Ortiz and Roberto Petagine before surrendering a grand slam to Jason Varitek*. Nunez got Kevin Millar to pop out to end the 8-run inning. (Curt Schilling got the save for the 11-9 win.)
[Added: His long-awaited first career slam.]
