The Boston Red Sox are in the midst of one of the worst skids in recent team memory, and things are so off track that general manager Ben Cherington made the road trip to Atlanta to check up on things on Memorial Day.
Cherington told reporters before the game that the stretch has been exceptionally difficult because there’s no pinpointing the source of the team’s struggles.
“It’s a bit atypical as losing streaks go, in that there are a lot of close games, a lot of one-run games, at least one two-run loss, a couple of three-run losses — so there’s competing going on,” Cherington said. “There’s effort. We’re just not doing well enough in any aspect of the game right now.”
