Seems like nothing is going right for the Boston Red Sox this season. Currently, fourth in the American League East standings, the Red Sox have been very in the 2022 season. Recently, the Red Sox even lost a game against an average side like the Baltimore Orioles. That too because of a mistaken throw. 

Right from the start of the season, they lost their opening day game against the arch-rivals New York Yankees. And now they are struggling in their division. Their recent outing against the Orioles sums up how terrible the Red Sox have been playing lately.

The video of this gameplay is going viral on the internet. In the video, one can see how the Red Sox catcher misses catching the throw from Sawamura and the Orioles do the walk-off in the ballpark.

If the Orioles manage to win the third game, the Boston Red Sox will lose their fourth consecutive series this season. In their last 11 games, the Red Sox have won only three games. And if things do not get better for the Red Sox, they might even go trophyless in the 2022 season.
