And that's how you kill momentum!
The Red Sox made a bad situation worse by getting swept Sunday, losing 4-2 to the Yankees.
Bright spots? Paul Byrd wasn't horrible. He gave up three runs in 5.2 innings -- so almost a quality start. I'll take it from him. As far as the offense is concerned, Sox batters really couldn't do anything against Andy Pettitte, but Jason Bay and J.D. Drew did have two hits on the day. Ramon Ramirez wasn't too shabby, either -- an inning of relief and he gave up just a hit. Not bad.
The bads? Well, we don't have time to go into that. We'll just sum it up by saying: they lost.
Now a three-game set with the Blue Jays at home to hopefully cure the blues. Let's hope it's enough to end this season on a nice six-game winning streak. Josh Beckett will be on the hill to right wrongs for Boston.
(Oh, and the Yankees clinched the East. Ehh. Whatever. It's hip to win the Wild Card nowadays...)
