Monday’s Red Sox spring training report: Five more errors from sloppy Sox

This ball was out of shortstop Christian Arroyo's reach on Monday at JetBlue Park, a feeling repeated more than once as the Red Sox were a defensive mess for the second straight day to begin spring games.

Breakdown: Garrett Richards allowed two runs in a 23-pitch first inning and only got one out before it was stopped. He came back for a perfect second inning, albeit one saved when right fielder César Puello robbed Cristian Pache of a home run. The Sox were held to five hits, committed five errors, and struck out 11 times.

Next: The Sox host Tampa Bay at 1:05 p.m. on Tuesday. Martín Pérez is scheduled to face Michael Wacha. The game will be on ESPN and WEEI-AM.

César Puello has Monday's big highlight for the Red Sox, reeling in a ball at the wall in the second inning.
