Sox Lose On Bogaerts Error, Napoli Injured
The Boston Red Sox lost a tough game on a cold night in Chicago when a Xander Bogaerts throwing error in the bottom of the 9th allowed a run to score giving the White Sox a 2-1 walk-off win.With two men on and two outs, Marcus Semien hit a ground ball to Bogaerts who made a low throw to first base which was not handled by Mike Carp allowing the winning run to score. Carp was at first base after Mike Napoli left the game in the top of the 9th after dislocating his finger on a slide into second base.
Boston tied the game in the 4th inning on a Daniel Nava homerun. Starting pitcher Jake Peavy pitched a good game going the first six innings, allowing just three hits and striking out eight.
