Zach Stewart was not good.

Actually, Zach Stewart was historically bad for a pitcher making their Red Sox debut. Three innings pitched, ten hits, nine runs. The first and third innings were almost identical, with two-run homers from Kendrys Morales and Chris Iannetta respectively capping off four-run frames.

It was awful. Flat junk in the zone, nothing that was even the least bit indicative of a major league pitcher. Batting practice for Angels pitchers the likes of which they probably haven't seen this year outside of rehab performances. This may well have been the single worst performance out of a Red Sox pitcher this year. I think Melancon had better stuff early on-possibly even Padilla in that one terrible game against the Yankees.

It could be a long time and, presumably, a good deal of work before Zach Stewart can erase this absolute disaster of a performance from the minds of the front office.

A few decent offensive performances don't even bear mentioning in the shade of this debacle. We're all better off pretending this night never happened.
