Staying Positive

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
The Red Sox won another series last night, despite losing to the Detroit Tigers, 7-5.
Aaron Cook pitched well for the first four innings, and the game was tied going into the fifth at 1-1. Then the wheels came off, as Cook allowed five runs, including back-to-back home runs to the scary combination of Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder (on consecutive pitches as well).
The Sox fought back, getting three in the sixth and another in the seventh, including a home run by Carl Crawford. But it ended there, as the Detroit bullpen shut the Sox down after that, with the last nine hitters going down in order.
That's two straight series won, with the winning streak ending at four games.
Now the Minnesota Twins come in for four games, another series the Red Sox need to win.
And One of the 25 finds himself in limbo this morning, as Derek Lowe was DFA'd by the Indians last night after another rough outing. D-Lowe is one of just five players (along with David Ortiz, Kevin Youkilis, Johnny Damon and Bronson Arroyo) from the 2004 World Series champions still active in MLB.
