It's looking more and more that the Baseball gods just aren't on the Boston Red Sox's side this year! On the same day that the Red Sox announced that Chris Sale was lost for the season after breaking his no-throwing hand wrist, the Red Sox placed closer Tanner Houck on the Injured List with lower back discomfort and recalled Kaleb Ort from Triple A Worcester. It was Ort who allowed 3 runs on 3 hits as the Atlanta Braves beat the Boston Red Sox 9-7 in 11 innings at Fenway Park on Tuesday, August 9th.
If he didn't have any bad luck he wouldn't have any luck whatsoever! Talk about someone who's totally snake bitten! The Boston Red Sox announced that Chris Sale will miss the rest of the 2022 after having surgery on Monday, August 8th.
