Borowski blows another
Cleveland Indians "closer" Joe Borowski recorded his second loss (and second blown save, for that matter) against the Boston Red Sox Monday night, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits in just 2/3 of an inning, all while watching his ERA jump to 18.00 on the year. With a capable arm in Rafael Betancourt lurking in the bullpen, Borowski's days as a closer could be numbered.
The blow up erased a somewhat shaky outing from Sox starter Jon Lester, who walked 5 in addition to allowing 4 runs on 5 hits through 4.1 innings.
