Worst Loss of 2009

Tom RicardoContributor IJuly 1, 2009

I imagine a lot of people went to sleep during the 1+ hour rain delay thinking this game was in the bag.  Last night’s box score will be a giant turd in the coffee of many New Englanders this morning.

John Smoltz looked sharp, as he did in the final innings of his first appearance.  The outcome of the game would probably be a little different if he would have pitched 6 innings.  Alas, the rain gods bent us over and defiled us, just as they have been doing for the past month.  The bullpen was apparently not prepared to finish this one off, as the quintet of Masterson, Delcarmen, Okajima, Saito, and Papelbon blew a 10 run lead in 2 innings of “work”.

On the bright side, it probably won’t get any worse than this.
