The pitching certainly wasn’t the only issue, though. (Nick Canelas; BP Boston)

Was the series over before it started after the Red Sox lost home field advantage? (John Tomase; WEEI)

For their part, the team dismisses this as a reasonable cause to their season’s demise. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)
