Bobby Dalbec was the only bright spot for the Red Sox on Wednesday. The rookie first baseman slugged two home runs in the eight and ninth innings respectively.
There hasn’t been much to cheer about for the Red Sox over the last three games. The Red Sox have now lost three straight games following their 12-7 loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

Tampa Bay Rays extend their AL East division lead
The Rays got out to a huge 12-1 lead at Fenway Park. The Fenway Faithful voiced their displeasure by heavily booing Jordan Luplow’s three-run home run in the seventh inning. Luplow’s home run came off of newly acquired Brad Peacock.
Boston will try and avoid the sweep at the hands of the Rays on Wednesday night. Boston is still a half game behind New York for the top Wild Card spot. However, the red-hot Blue Jays are now just two games behind the Red Sox for the final Wild Card spot.
