Tropicana Field is full of quirks, and the Red Sox fell victim to one of them on Tuesday night.
Instead of getting back on the right track and cruising to a victory after a first-inning home run by David Ortiz. the Sox sputtered the rest of the way in dropping another game. That makes Boston losers in nine of its last 11 games, as the Red Sox continue to tumble further down the standings.
It was a frustrating game to be sure, and it’s leaving NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette thinking that it might not have turned out so badly if the Trop didn’t affect the game so much. He’s still giving Ortiz our “Fresh Squeezed” player of the game, though. Who’s yours?
