Sox Roadtrip Starts With A Thud [VIDEO]
No David Ortiz. No Hanley Ramirez. No pitching. No offense. No win. The Toronto Blue Jays rocked the Red Sox 7-0 Friday night.
Make it six losses in the last seven games.
With Big Papi serving a one game suspension and Hanley Ramirez out with a shoulder injury, the Sox managed just two hits all night.
The Sox were 0-for-7 with runners in scoring postion. For the month of May, the Sox are 4-for-52 with RISP.
On the mound, even with pitching coach Juan Nieves gone it was the same story. Starter Wade Miley gave up runs early in the game. He gave up four runs over six innings of work.
Toronto got home runs from Josh Donaldson and Chris Colabello.
The Sox drop to 13-16.
NOTE: According to several reports, the Sox will hire Carl Willis as their new pitching coach. He had been working as pitching coach for the Triple-A Columbus Clippers. Willis is a former big league pitcher and worked as pitching coach in Seattle and Cleveland.
