The Boston Red Sox bullpen has been the one consistently strong element this season, but that wasn’t the case Monday night against the Seattle Mariners.
Relief had to be called out early after John Lackey gave up seven earned runs in 3 2/3 innings, but Chris Capuano couldn’t get the job done. Capuano let up five earned runs in 2 1/3 innings before being taken out.
But the bullpen will get a chance to show why it’s still one of the best in baseball Tuesday during round two in Seattle.
