Red Sox finally hit — but it’s rock bottom

Welcome to rock bottom.

The Red Sox are nine games under .500 for the second time this year, but the later it gets, the worse it gets. The Sox are one game ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East. They are one percentage point better than the Cubs, who swept them at Fenway Park. The Sox have been swept six times already, four times at Fenway.
