Anthony Ranaudo grew up watching Derek Jeter and the Yankees. On Friday night in his major league debut, he got the best of them.
Mookie Betts does his best Jackie Bradley imitation with a leaping catch to rob Jacoby Ellsbury and preserve a one-run lead.
2yNobody expected Kyle Weiland to pitch a complete-game shutout, but there were hopes he could keep them in it. Those hopes were dashed when the O's scored six runs before Weiland left after 4 23 innings.
2yRed Sox starters have a 6.38 ERA in September, the main reason for the team's dismal 4-14 record.
2yA potential RBI double by David Ortiz that was ruled foul by the umpires is the difference in Boston's one-run loss.
2yAnd the slide continues. With the loss the Red Sox' lead in the wild card has fallen to 1.5 games.
2yAlso, notes on the Red Sox offense, Adrian Gonzalez leaving the game, Marco Scutaro's recent production, and much more from Game 1 of the double-header
2yWell, there is some good. But, not surprisingly, the bad and the ugly far outweigh any positive the Red Sox can take out of the last few weeks.
2yWelcome to First Pitch, a quick spin around the world of Major League Baseball . . . or at least the corner of it that most concerns the Red Sox.
