LAA 5, BOS 3: Get it together

Evan Brunell@evanbrunellFeatured ColumnistJuly 21, 2008

Bad enough we get swept.  Bad enough it was a come from behind victory by the Angels to complete the sweep.

Up by one in the eighth inning, Howie Kendrick hits an RBI double to left to tie the game then Boston loses the lead completely on a two-RBI double by Casey Kotchman.

Francisco Rodriguez strikes out the side in the ninth to earn his 40th save of the season and secure the sweep of the Red Sox.

Goat of the game:  I ask again:

Is Tim Wakefield left in there too long or can Tito not trust his bullpen as Manny Delcarmen also got whacked in that inning?

Your call, but my call is this: TRADE FOR SOME RELIEVERS WHO CAN WELL RELIEVE.

Next Game: Seattle

Wonderful, another team we cannot beat out west.  Somethings got to give here for Boston with this slump already.  The starters have pitched well and got the wrong end of the job in back-to-back nights.  What gives?
