Done in again by small mistakes that get magnified in a stretch such as this

As Boston Red Sox players donned red , white and blue outfits to celebrate a 3-0 victory on the 4th of July that completed a sweep, the Washington Nationals held a players-only meeting to discuss a fifth consecutive loss and the precarious spot they’re now in beyond the halfway point of the season.

This time, it was a throwing error by Adam Eaton on a sacrifice fly in foul territory and a wild pitch by Ryan Madson (2-4) in a disastrous seventh inning that dropped the Nationals to 42-43 and kept them from making up ground on the division-leading Atlanta Braves.

”We’re a good team and we’re going to go out there and compete with anybody,” said Bryce Harper, who went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts.

”We just have to keep grinding and keep doing our thing and good things will happen. We’ve never been in this position before, and I think it’s an exciting time for us. In years past, we’ve won the division by a lot of games. We’re able to be behind right now and I’m excited to get there and test it.”

Powered by struggling outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr.’s two RBIs on the sac fly and a ninth-inning double and a strong start by Eduardo Rodriguez (10-3), the Red Sox moved 30 games over .500 under rookie manager Alex Cora.

”We know where we’re at Nick Bosa Jersey , but we still have a long ways to go,” Cora said. ”(The Nationals) have a good team. They’ll figure it out. I’ve seen that before from them. They struggle a little bit and they’ll pick it up. They’ll be in the hunt.”

Bradley, who came into the game hitting .201, worked full counts on each of his at-bats that produced a run. He was hoping the ball Eaton caught deep in foul territory down the third-base line would go out of play so he could see another pitch but will gladly take the RBIs – the second time this season he has had two in a game without a home run.

”Just had to continue to battle and finally get a pitch I could handle,” Bradley said. ”Any time you can help the team win, it’s a positive. It’s good, any way you can do it.”

Rodriguez struck out six in six scoreless innings, mixing his change-up and slider in more often to keep Nationals hitters off-balance.

The Red Sox now have the first pair of 10-game winners in the majors with Rodriguez and Rick Porcello, whose double off Max Scherzer helped win them the first game of this series.

The Nationals have lost four series in a row. This freefall led to the postgame meeting Wednesday afternoon.

”It’s `Let’s get this thing going,”’ Nationals infielder Trea Turner said. ”We all know we’re capable of playing better baseball. It’s time we do it. It’s do or die now.”


Nationals starter Erick Fedde left the game one batter into the second inning with right shoulder stiffness and gave way to left-hander Matt Grace Dwayne Haskins Jersey , who allowed just one hit and struck out four in four innings of relief. Manager Davey Martinez said Fedde was scheduled to have an MRI.

”We watched him throw and his (velocity) was down,” Martinez said. ”He was out there and wanted to keep pitching. I went out there and they told me he was stiff and I said `No, we’re not going to do that to you.”’


Red Sox: Manager Alex Cora said LHP Drew Pomeranz (biceps tendinitis) would most likely make a second rehab start early next week. … RHP Tyler Thornburg was activated from the disabled list after rehabbing from shoulder surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome last June.

Nationals: 1B Matt Adams was activated after missing 16 games with a broken left index finger. To clear room, LHP Tim Collins was designated for assignment. … C Matt Wieters (left hamstring strain) is doing some catching, but still hasn’t done enough running to be ready to return.


Red Sox: After a day off, LHP Chris Sale (8-4, 2.41 ERA) brings a 15-inning scoreless streak into his Friday start at Kansas City, which is expected to start Jason Hammel (2-10, 5.56).

Nationals: RHP Jeremy Hellickson (2-1, 2.63) will look to last at least six innings to spare a heavily used bullpen when Washington faces RHP Pablo Lopez (1-0 , 3.00) to open a four-game series against the Miami Marlins.

Earlier this year, Jay Cutler was cut from the Chicago Bears after eight years leading their offense. There are few quarterbacks in the NFL who have had the rocky relationship with the media, and their own team's fans like Cutler has. In spite of a powerful and indeed, accurate throwing arm, Cutler has always had serious problems with his decision-making, and is almost synonymous with untimely interceptions.Prior to his eight seasons in Chicago, Cutler played in Denver for three years, and got the job in Chicago after a very impressive 2008 season (albeit a season that still involved 18 picks, second most, only behind an aged Brett Favre). That 2008 year saw him place third in the NFL in passing yards Jaylon Ferguson Jersey , with 4,526. He was seventh in touchdown passes, was sacked just eleven times on the year, and averaged over 280 yards through the air per game. Take away the picks and that's a great season for any field general.Of course, since then he performed less impressively in Chicago (but not nearly as bad as many of his haters like to claim). After Ryan Tannehill was declared unable to play this season, Cutler signed on with the Miami Dolphins, to the tune of a single year, $10 million contract. He had originally intended to take a job broadcasting in his retirement, but decided to return to the league. According to Cutler, he joked that the final push he needed to join the team was from his wife Quinnen Williams Jersey , reality TV star Kristin Cavallari, who "got tired of me around the house." It's a funny joke, but one has to imagine an NFL quarterback sharing a house with a reality TV personality could get irritating.With that in mind, this is a reminder that Jay Cutler has one of the most gorgeous celebrity WAGs of any athlete out there. Here are fifteen gorgeous pictures of Kristin that Jay would probably rather we all didn't see.
