Fields made a very costly throwing error, airmailing a throw he had all day to make with the opposing catcher running. That lead to 6 unearned runs, I believe. The Bullpen was spectacular again.
I think we're seeing why the Sox thought they could start both Owens and Young in AA. Both have adjusted pretty quickly, and Young still has some digging to do to get out of the hole he dug himself (and he's still striking out at a high rate), but both of these guys have really been tearing the cover off the ball foor the past 10 days or so.
