New GM, Sox Lose 4-2 [VIDEO]
Mike Hazen gets the promotion to Red Sox GM. Hanley Ramirez gets shut down for the rest of the season. The Sox offense sputtered again in a 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay. Welcome to a big day and night around Fenway Park.
The news that new president of baseball operations, Dave Dombrowski, wants Hazen as his GM was met with great reviews in Boston. It is a sign of some continuity in the front office.
David Ortiz clubbed his 36th home run and reached the 100 RBI mark for a ninth time.
But all in all, the offense did nothing all night against Rays pitching. The 4-2 loss puts the Sox a game further into the cellar of the AL East.
