In a game that saw six home runs, you'd think it would have gone a little bit better for the Sox.
The Sox lost game two to the Rays, 6-4, on Wednesday night. The Sox hit two homers, the Rays upped them by hitting four of their own.
The bad news? Brad Penny gave up five runs in six innings, including three home runs (Jason Bartlett hit one off Manny Delcarmen). Bay left the game because he re-injured his hamstring and will be out two games.
Anything else to mention? Not really.
The Sox were just beat by a good team these last two days. They could have (should have?) won the 13-inning game, but you miss out on games like that. Today, with four home runs given up, it's hard to say the Sox should have won it. Nevertheless, the season continues.
The Sox start a HUGE four-game series with the Yankees starting Thursday at 7 p.m. Should be an interesting four days.
