Another game lost...and a season with it?

NEW YORK -- Top of the first inning Sunday: Jacoby Ellsbury leads off with a single, and promptly gets picked off.

Bottom of the first inning Sunday: The Yankees turn two bunt singles, two steals, a wild pitch, a passed ball and an error into two runs.

The game could have ended right there. The Red Sox season could have ended right there.

You thought the 9-1 loss to the Yankees on Saturday was bad? Well, the 6-2 loss on Sunday afternoon was no better.

And John Lackey, owner of the worst ERA of any regular starting pitcher in baseball, starts for the Red Sox on Sunday night.

Oh, and the out-of-town scoreboard kept showing the Rays ahead of the Blue Jays. The Rays won, 5-2, cutting the Boston lead in the wild card to just half a game.

"We've got four games," manager Terry Francona said. "We can right our whatever. We need to work on our righting skills."

Francona then wrote out a Game 2 lineup that included J.D. Drew, in his first appearance since July 19.

There is some good news, Red Sox fans. Jacoby Ellsbury hit two home runs, his 29th and 30th of the year. He has 100 RBI. He's having a great September.

He'd be an MVP candidate, if his teammates weren't collapsing around him.

The Red Sox are 5-18 in September. They're 1-18 when they don't score 12 runs.

Their starting pitchers -- it was Tim Wakefield Sunday afternoon -- have a 7.32 ERA.

They've scored first in just two of their last 16 games.

They might have scored first Sunday afternoon -- except that Ellsbury got picked off. The Yankees scored first -- because the Red Sox handed them two runs.

Oh, and John Lackey starts Sunday night. With J.D. Drew in right field.

Huge hit by Ells, made watching 10 hrs of baseball worth it.  Alot of good signs in this game with Lackey pitching well and the bullpen pretty much unhittable.  I understand it was against the B squad but Granderson and Cano played all 14.... really looking forward to tomorrow nights game to see if there can be some carry over effect, lets get into Baltimore have a great nights sleep come out tomorrow and tcob....  Hard to even think about right now but win the next 2 hope for a Rays loss along the way, and the Sox can be set up with Lester and Beckett to go the first 2....
