The Sox' tepid offensive showing on their disastrous road trip shines the light on a disturbing trend: The team's inability to get key hits in close games.
Kevin Youkilis is 'having a great time' with the White Sox, as evidenced by Wednesday's 3-for-6 performance, which included the game-winning hit in an extra-inning win over Texas.
David Ortiz became the eighth active player to reach the milestone and moved into 49th place on the all-time homer list with his 400th home run.
The Red Sox manager said that pitcher Aaron Cook gave a good performance, but the team failed to 'help him out with the runs.'
The Red Sox mustered just three hits Wednesday afternoon while suffering their first sweep in Oakland since 2008.
