That's an ugly graph. I didn't see the game so I'm going to do an abbreviated recap today. Please add your own thoughts and comments.

Curt Schilling. Schill was off his game last night, but the game wasn't out of reach. The entire Sox lineup is the runner up for only driving in 3 runs on 12 hits

"I would say location of his fastball early really put him in a bind"

- Terry Francona.

"A craptastic finish to what could have been a nice series. I never gave us a chance to even get into this game...

"To say this was frustrating would be a huge understatement. John and I spent the last few days working on commanding my fastball, getting back to some of the basics and I felt I had it under control going into this game...

"My split was not getting into the dirt consistently, which only adds to the problem when you mix that in with inconsistent fastball command...

"Players on both teams know how far is left in the race, neither team is even remotely thinking it's over one way or the other. Bottom line is that we have complete control of our own destiny. Playing this schedule means that when you get a lead this big you'll play the teams behind you enough to finish them off, or let them back in. Throw out my inconsistency and I like our chances. Obviously we need to stay healthy, but we have a solid deep team with tremendous character and those two things are tremendously important over the course of 162 schedule. Add to that a front office that you know will fill any hole we might have come the trading deadline and you have to feel good about this team.
