Simply put, this 4-3 Red Sox loss falls on the bullpen. Namely, Junichi Tazawa, who seemingly can't get anyone out these days.

The Sox took a 3-1 lead into the 8th inning Thursday afternon. Clay Buchholz pitched six very good innings. Robbie Ross pitched the 7th.

But Tazawa came in and allowed three consecutive hits and before Brad Ziegler could clean up the mess it was 5-3 Tigers.

The Sox stranded runners at second and third in the 9th inning.

A tough loss no matter how you look at it.

The Red Sox take on Detroit Friday night in the 2nd game of the 4 game series with the pregame starting at 6:25 PM
