MLB.com Doesn't Know How To Add

Amanda BrunoCorrespondent IAugust 13, 2009

I was browsing on MLB.com and realized the Boston Red Sox had a day game against Detroit. Being at work all day and swamped, I didn't have time to check the score.
So I go to check out the score of the game, and this is what I found. 
Notice anything wrong in the picture to the right?
Looking at it, it appears that the Tigers scored three runs, correct? Well the final was actually 2-0, not 3-0.
Note: Unfortunately B/R wouldn't let me crop it enough to show the whole boxscore. To see it in its entirety, visit Batter-up with Bruno.
Apparently whoever was working the box this afternoon forgot the basics of mathematics, or they accidentally gave the Tigers two runs in the top of the seventh inning. Or they thought that the seventh inning column was the total runs column.
Now, under the circumstances, it sure confused me, and I had to go to boston.com to find out the real score of the game.
Congrats, MLB.com box scorers; learn how to properly add up columns or use the software. 
Author's note: Thanks to Ian Bethune from Sox & Dawgs, who kindly gave me a picture of the boxscore.
