This is becoming an issue. The Red Sox just don't score runs when Chris Sale pitches and it happened again last night in a 6-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins.

Sale worked seven innings, giving up two runs on just three hits. He struck out 11 and left the game with a 2-2 score.

Manager Alex Cora brought in Robbie Scott, just up from Triple-A and that turned out to be a bad move. Scott walked the leadoff hitter and then hit the next batter.

In comes Joe Kelly and he promptly gave four runs (two charged to Scott). Game over.

Eduardo Escobar was the big hitter for the Twins.

Rafael Devers smacked a solo home run for the Sox.

Boston drops to 49-25 and into second place in the AL East.
