Red Sox Lose Eighth Straight Game, Land In AL East Cellar

Frustration has to be building up for the Boston Red Sox who after falling to the Tampa Bay Rays by a final score of 1-0 thanks to a walk off pinch hit double by Cole Figueroa have now lost eight in a row.

Last night also marked their third walk off loss in the last four nights. Their record drops to 20-27 and they are in last place in the AL East.

Their offense has been dormant hitting just .220 (60 for 273) during the eight game losing streak.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
