An Ugly And Avoidable Astros' Comeback Foils The Red Sox...Houston 11 Boston 10

It's Sunday morning, a "morning after" time for Red Sox Nation and Red Sox International. I know you can't win 'em all, but with leads of 4-0 and 9-6, the Boston Red Sox managed to lose Saturday night's game in Houston by a score of 11-10. I have to be honest with you...I did not see a minute of the game, so I am ill equipped to write about it. That doesn't happen often, as you know. But sometimes, the less said, the better. So I'll do exactly that. You can consider it a bad night for Jon Lester, who has been tremendous this year, and Manny Delcarmen, who allowed the winning runs to score late in the game. We pin our hopes on Josh Beckett today to end the National League set of games on a winning note. Josh is overdue for a victory, mainly because the Sox are not putting up many crooked numbers on the scoreboard to back his efforts. This team needs a "W." TODAY.

Have a great Sunday, enjoy the afternoon baseball (2:05pm EDT) and then get ready for the rough and ready Tampa Bay Rays, beginning Monday. Oh, you can click on the title of this post to be linked to the Boston Globe Red Sox homepage for all the ugly details from last night. Go Sox---five or more runs should do it. And as always, be well.
