A wild game in Cleveland was literally dropped by Javier Lopez on a routine 3-1 groundout. The Sox forfeited the lead 3 times in this 9-8, 4 hour, 20 minute baseball bloodbath.
Poor defense, a horrible start from Penny, three leads blown, the Red Sox were fortunate to even be in this game.
The Man of the Game:
Ben Francisco. He went 2 for 4, with a homer and 3 RBI.
Brad Penny: 0.8
Takashi Saito: 0.1
Javier Lopez: 0.1
Jon Lester vs. 1-3 Fausto Carmona Wednesday night in the rubber game.
