Sean McAdam, on Sunday's woes:
Over the last five innings in their defeat to the Los Angeles Angels, the Red Sox stranded eight baserunners, including the potential tying run in scoring position and the potential go-ahead run at first in the ninth inning.Work was horrendous this weekend, so I saw only the first three innings of yesterday's game (plus the last three Sox hitters in the ninth).
The Sox left the bases full in the eighth, a runner on third in the seventh and runners at the corners in the sixth. ...
The loss was their second one-run setback in the last four days, and both were largely a function of the team's inability to hit with runners on base - particularly with runners in scoring position. ...
Feel free to complain, offer hope, or write off the entire season.
