G33: Brewers 7, Red Sox 4

Red Sox - 010 100 011 - 4 11  2
Brewers - 200 041 00x - 7 13  0
Top of 5th: Just walked in*, turned on NESN, and the first words I hear are from Dave O'Brien. He says the game is tied 2-2, and then:
The Red Sox have not had a lead yet in this series.
WTF?!? Why does he keep saying that? He made the exact same mistake last night. ... Did I dream Mookie Betts's leadoff home run last night?

The Brewers scored two runs in the first inning after Kyle Kendrick (4.1-10-6-1-2, 87) retired the first two hitters. The Red Sox tied the game at 2-2 after Jackie Bradley homered in the second and Betts singled in Christian Vazquez in the fourth.

Once I started watching, however, the roof fell in. Kendrick allowed hits to four of the first five batters in the fifth and Milwaukee soon led 6-2.

Boston's other two runs scored on a double play and a groundout to third.

The Red Sox left nine men on base and went 2-for-16 with RATS. ... It was a night of missed opportunities:
1st: Men at second and third, one out. No runs.
3rd: Man on second, no outs; men on first and second, one out. No runs.
5th: Men at first and second, one out. No runs.
6th: Leadoff walk erased by double play.
7th: One-out walk erased by double play.
8th: Bases loaded, no outs. One run scores on GIDP.
*: After watching Erie beat Mississauga 5-2 in Game 4 of the Ontario Hockey League's Championship Series.
