    The Road Worriers at it Again

    Red Sox road record drops to 18-24 (that aint gonna cut it).
    Red Sox pitching gives up 16 hits as Sox bats get only 4.
    Lowest point ever?
    Damon's streak fails to make the trip.

    Boston Red Sox's pitcher Curtis Leskanic reacts after giving up a two run homer to Anaheim Angels' Darin Estad during the sixth inning at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., on Thursday, July 15 , 2004.

    Were Boston's bats asleep or did Washburn pitch a gem?
    "He's been doing that to me my entire career," Damon said. "He's not afraid of anything. We didn't swing the bats too well tonight, but that could be because he was able to throw his fastball everywhere. I think he might have started throwing a split-finger, and we haven't seen that too much from him."

    The Sox sloppy play in the field was apparent again from who other than WB Mason....err Kevin Millar. Millar was in place to catch a short blooper near the third base line but let the ball drop at his feet. The Aneheim scorer gave the home team the hit, as the Angles put the first of many runs on the board.
    "Kevin's not the fleetest of foot, we all know that. But he gives you what he has," Francona said. "He got to the line, looked like he gave one glance at the end, and that probably did him in. The infielders were playing in because they respected Figgins' speed, so they had a long way to go."

    Lowe offcialy sucks as he raised his ERA to 5.67 and lowered his record to 7-9

    "Every inning, I think he averaged about 25 pitches," said Sox manager Terry Francona. "That's tough going, I mean, right from the get-go. When you've got 100 pitches after five, and this was before five, that's a decent indication that something is not the way you drew it up."

    Francona drew up a VERY WELL RESTED Pedro tonight against a 5-5 Escobar at 10pm
