Boston Red Sox Still Winless After Losing To Cleveland Indians, 3-1

Josh Beckett was completely adequate in his first start of the season, but the Boston Red Sox could manage just one run against Cleveland Indians starter Josh Tomlin in a 3-1 loss. Beckett gave up three earned over five innings, struggling with his pitch count (which topped out at 106). But regardless of his performance, the Red Sox offense was unable to create anything against Tomlin, who scattered three hits in his seven innings.

Boston is now 0-4 for the first time since 1996. Their team batting average is .186. And while it's only four games, SB Nation's Over The Monster is starting panic:

Time to panic yet? I'm starting to think so.

The Red Sox are now 0-4 after falling to the Indians, 3-1. Make no mistake: this was one of the ones they were really supposed to win. [...]

If there's one thing really scary about this loss, it's that there's just not a lot of mitigating circumstances. It wasn't a matter of crazy fly balls in Texas, or a slow start from a guy like Jon Lester, or Daniel Bard exploding. The Sox, from man number one to man number twenty-five, were outplayed. And by the Cleveland Indians.

The Red Sox' next chance for their first win comes on Wednesday night at 7:05 p.m. ET against the Indians. Daisuke Matsuzaka will go against Mitch Talbot.
