Red Sox bats go missing in 2-0 loss
It took the Red Sox nearly three hours to get their first hit in Monday’s contest with the Chicago Cubs. With two out in the 8th inning Steven Drew laced a Jake Arrieta cutter into right field. The Red Sox have not been no hit in 21 years, and that streak goes to 56 years at Fenway.
Arrietta flirted with a no no for seven and two third innings, and his team won the game 2-0 in the series opener at Fenway Park Three Chicago pitches held the Sox to a measly two hits.
The Sox were hoping to return to some home cooking’ after a dismal nine game road trip, where the team hit .233 and left 64 runners on base.
Sox starter Jake Peavy gave up just two runs on five hits with seven strikeouts. Once again he was victimized by lack of run support. In this case he got zero.
