OAKLAND 5 Boston 0
That's zero. It was too late for me to watch or listen to the game but here, thanks to the Boston Globe's EXTRA BASES, is a perfect small encapsulation...
"John Lackey deserved a better fate. He allowed one run over six innings. But the Sox have been held scoreless in 20 consecutive innings on the road. They are 0-7 away from home this season and winless in nine consecutive road games dating back to last season. Brett Anderson pitched a gem (8 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K).
I guess you can't win 'em all, but that mini-run was SO great! I have a solution, easier said than done. Here it is. Hey guys, LET'S WIN SOME ROAD GAMES. If the bats ain't there, the fans despair. Click on the title of this post for more, please. As always, BE WELL.
