BOS 0 4 0
CLE 1 3 0
Suicide squeeze? Check. Pickoffs? Check. A sixth straight loss to open the season? Check.
The long march that the 2011 regular season has become continued this afternoon with a crisp 1-0 loss to the Indians. The lone run came home on a suicide squeeze, which is the sort of play you would see more often in 1911 than 2011. The Red Sox got the tying run to second base in the top of the ninth, but pinch runner Darnell McDonald slipped and was picked off base to end the game.
Of course he was.
And you say the Yankees are next? Fantastic.
