The Devil Rays suffered their 11th consecutive loss last night as the Red Sox finished a sweep at Fenway with a 15-4 pounding in which the Sox put 13 runs on the board over the first three innings.  Coco Crisp hit a first-inning grand slam, Mike Lowell had five hits and five RBIs, and Josh Beckett coasted to his 12th win as the Sawx kept their 12-game lead over Toronto and New York in the Al East. 

The good news is that this is rock bottom for the D-Rays.  It doesn't get much worse than Coco Crisp hitting a grand slam.  The Rays would have to get relegated to the NL, then let a pitcher hit a grand slam for it to be worse.  Hmmm… relegation to the NL: that sounds fair.  But who to promote to the AL?  Are there any good teams in the NL?  The Padres?  The Mets?  Don't even say the Brewers.

Other MLB scores: Fatty C.C. Sabathia and his crooked hat gave up 7 runs as the Tigers jumped on the Indians 12-3, narrowing the gap in the AL Central and getting Justin Verlander his 10th win… goddam Angels can't even get swept.  Stupid Kelvim Escobar has a stupid first name… The Cubs have a winning record.  It doesn't make sense until you realize they did it by beating the Nats.
