That Was Not Good, Boston Beat Texas 9-2

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: It was 2-1 Boston in the top of the 4th and Nellie had a lead off double.  Then, Nellie proceeds to get picked off at second after taking a ridiculously big lead off.  It was uphill sledding offensively from that point forward.

Yu got beat up for 6 ER's and 4 BB's in 6.2 IP.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Beltre had a homer in the top of the 9th.  Nellie did have 3 hits.  And Josh had a hit.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: I blame this on Oz-gate (Oswalt refusing to go out for a 3rd inning in the last game vs. KC) and/or a hangover from the tough loss in the finale versus KC.  The team looked unsettled.  Including Yu.

Next up Dempster.  Let's see if he looks like an ace tomorrow night.  If they have needed a strong start from an ace pitcher this season I'd say tomorrow is it.
