Red Sox 6, Cubs 2: Theo Epstein's "reunion" weekends ends with Red Sox scoring four runs in bottom of eighth inning to claim rubber match of three-game series. After three straight hits against ex-Red Sox closer Koji Uehara, Marco Hernandez dashed home from third base to score go-ahead run on a wild pitch by Pedro Strop. Eduardo Rodriguez, meanwhile, gave Sox six strong innings in a duel with Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks.

Of Eduardo Rodriguez's seven strikeouts so far, none bigger than getting Jon Jay on dirt-diving changeup to get out of two-on, two-out spot in fourth inning. Rodriguez impressive to this point.

The Fenway scoreboard says exit velocity on Hanley Ramirez's two-run homer was 112 mph. Sounds about right. Second consecutive game that Ramirez crushes a homer to left field -- and flips his bat, stylishly.

For Red Sox, seventh inning as ugly as it gets

Cue the carnival music. Between a managerial mistake and sloppy defensive play, Boston fell to the Cubs after the club's worst frame of the season.

Cubs 7, Red Sox 4: As bad losses go, what happened Saturday at Fenway Park ranks high on the list. The Red Sox (12-11) blew an early three-run lead, giving up three runs in an ugly seventh inning in which starter Steven Wright gave up the game-tying homer, the defense threw the ball all over the field and the undermanned bullpen wilted. On plus side, Hanley Ramirez launched a tape-measure homer onto Lansdowne Street.
