Yesterday's game marks the 30th time that the Red Sox have scored at least 12 runs in a game while allowing their opponents to score at least 12. Their record in those games is 21-8-1.

I think a loss on a par with yesterday's came against the Tigers in 1920 when they out-scored the Tigers 12-4 in innings 6 through 9 to twice take the lead (8th, 9th), only to lose in the 12th. Actually, since they came from so far behind (1-9), it may be even slightly more disheartening.

001 000 552 000 Red Sox--1920
102 501 112 001 Tigers

025 002 001 02 Red Sox--2012
410 200 003 03 Tigers

Wonder how many times they have ever blown multiple, 2+ run leads in the 9th inning or later

According to Elias, including yesterday, they've done it one time

Wonder how many times it was a homer that did the trick each time. I'm guessing zero.

I also wonder how many times the Sox have given up a game tying HR to a guy with the initials MC in the bottom of the 9th on an Easter Sunday with the wind blowing east, solar declination angle at 16.4 degrees, and average infield grass height of 2.4 inches.

Probably zero.

The Sox lost to the White Sox 23-12 on May 31, 1970. It's one of the first games I remember going to, and the first one when I sat in the Fenway bleachers.

Among the things I remember from it:

-- Gary Peters started for the Sox. I really liked Gary Peters because he was such a good hitter.

-- Gerry Janeski started for the other Sox. I seem to recall that he was a Boston prospect traded to Chicago to get Peters, which I thought was cool. [If I have/had the facts right.]

-- The White Sox were my second favorite team then, in large part because they had Carlos May (who had half a thumb) and they had Walt "No-Neck" Williams (who had no neck). Stuff like that matters when you're nine years old. They also had Luis Aparicio, who was awesome, and Duane Josephson who I liked but have no idea why.

-- Yaz played the game in center field. I couldn't tell you why. He also homered.

-- The game took so long that we were late getting my grandfather to a 6pm flight out of Logan to go home to Miami.
