Will Middlebrooks, Clayton Mortensen Unable to Give Red Sox ‘Beginner’s Luck’ Despite Strong Starts (Video)

The Red Sox brought up reinforcements from Pawtucket to battle the A’s on Wednesday night, but even their solid contributions couldn’t get the team a win. Despite Will Middlebrooks and Clayton Mortensen dazzling in their first big-league stints for Boston, Oakland left town with the series victory after another tough loss for the Sox.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is a little bummed out that the Sox wasted strong efforts by the young guys, so he’s awarding them our “Beginner’s Luck” awards after this one. Not that they were lucky, mind you, but that it would have been nice if they were. Or something.
