The Boston Red Sox continued interleague play Friday night, as they traveled to Pittsburgh to take on the Pirates. The Sox were without one of their big weapons, David Ortiz because of NL rules of no designated hitter. In a night where Boston had mediocre performance from the middle of the order, they certainly could have used him. While Boston compiled nine hits, they could not execute in the clutch, falling to the Bucs, 3-1.
With this loss, the Sox have dropped three in a row. Luckily, New York lost as well so Boston still holds a half a game lead in the AL East.
