“We got no bullpen. We got swept by the Cubs. Our broadcaster’s teeth are falling out!”
Wednesday night capped off another rough outing for the Boston Red Sox, who lost 16-9 at home against the lowly Chicago Cubs. It was, by any measure, a bad night at Fenway Park, with the only moment of levity occurring when broadcaster Jerry Remy lost a tooth in the middle of the game.
In the top of the fourth, the NESN television crew kicked it over to the former Red Sox second baseman, who sat alongside fellow broadcaster Don Orsillo, marveling at his lost tooth.
“This is a first,” Orsillo said. “You’ve lost a lot of stuff during games, but you’ve never lost a tooth.”
