This day in baseball history

The last time a team from Boston started the season 6-0 against a team from New York was 1912 when the Red Sox won 14 straight against the Highlanders.

In other news from that year, the Titanic sank, Fenway Park opened and Woodrow Wilson beat William Howard Taft in the presidential election.

The Red Sox won the World Series, the Highlanders finished 50-102.

“Tough season for us,” Angel Berroa said.

The postgame was a bit bizarre. Joe Girardi took the bullet for A.J. Burnett, saying he pitched on too much rest. Then Burnett tried to come up with as many ways as he could to say he stinks.
