Red Sox fall to White Sox 2-1 on error in 9th
Question of the Day
CHICAGO (AP) - The Boston Red Sox believed they were headed to extra innings on a frigid night at U.S. Cellular Field.
“It’s cold weather, but that’s no excuse for that play,” Bogaerts said. “That’s a ball I should’ve thrown right at the chest to him.”
“The check swing from the open side clearly looked like - given some of the other check swings that were called here tonight - it was more extensive than some other ones,” Farrell said. “But we don’t get the call.”
Badenhop (0-2) took the loss, and White Sox reliever Daniel Webb (1-0) got one out in the ninth for the victory, the first of his major league career.
“No, I didn’t think I swung,” Semien said. “I looked back and saw how A.J. (Pierzynski) caught it and made it look like a pretty good pitch. I think they were mad about it not being a strike. … I am glad I ran down to first hard and good things happened.”
Daniel Nava homered for Boston, which has lost three straight. Twelve of the Red Sox’s 15 runs in their past six games have come via the home run. Nava’s homer in the fourth off White Sox starter Erik Johnson tied the game at one.
Boston, which has averaged only 3.5 runs per game, fourth fewest in the American League, watched its cleanup hitter leave the game with an injury.
First baseman Mike Napoli left in the top of the ninth inning after dislocating his left ring finger sliding into second base on Donnie Veal’s wild pitch. X-rays were negative, and Farrell said Napoli is day to day.
“I really don’t do it often,” Napoli said of sliding head first. “But on a play like that when I don’t know what kind of throw or what’s going to happen and I see Alexei coming across. It’s my first instinct to try and get to the bag as quick as possible.”
