The Red Sox fell to the Angels 7-3 and now have 14 losses in the month of August. The last time the Red Sox lost 14 games in August was all the way back in 2003 with Grady Little as manager. Clay Buchholz allowed a season-high and tied a career-high by allowing 12 hits in just 5 1/3 innings. The seven runs also matched a season-high for Buchholz, who allowed seven runs in his first start of the year against Detroit. Buchholz had allowed three runs or less in his last six starts going into last night.

Buchholz: ‘I’m not really disappointed’- Maureen Mullen also looks at Buchholz’s start Wednesday night.
It was bound to happen eventually, even to Red Sox- Peter Abraham looks at some of the most respected and successful franchises in the league who have had losing records since the last time the Red Sox did.
