Sometimes Mother Nature shows no mercy. That was the case Wednesday night for the Red Sox. A rainout to wash away a runaway loss would have been heaven from the heavens.
Instead, the only deluge at Fenway Park last night came in the form of runs, not rain. The Twins flooded the bases with 20 hits and saturated the scoreboard. They had 14 runs and 16 hits after five innings and went on to a 15-8 victory.
