Bummers for Boston

Chances of a Boston sports fan enjoying last night’s Red Sox or Bruins games were… remote.

I clicked back and forth between Fox and NBC searching for some flashes of success. David Ortiz clouted his 16th home run in the first inning and Tom Verducci noted that this made Ortiz the visiting player with the most home runs in Comerica Park.

Zdeno Chara scored the Bruins’ only goal, a slap shot in the second period that was assisted by David Krejci and Milan Lucic.

Both teams not only lost but were hampered by injuries. Patrice Bergeron was sent to the hospital with an undisclosed injury but was cleared to return home with the rest of the team this morning. If the Bruins have to proceed without the center it will be hard to keep calm and Bergeron to the Stanley Cup.

Franklin Morales threw for 2⅓ innings but departed with discomfort in his left pectoral muscle and shoulder. Viable arms in the Red Sox bullpen dwindle as do the hours of sunlight after the summer solstice.

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.” How will these teams recover?
