The Umpiring Was Terrible, But The Red Sox Have Their Offense To Blame For The Loss
That's not the only play Bucknor blatantly screwed up. There's really no reason he should ever be umpiring a playoff game, and this game was proof of that.
Check out the animated gif of a play that was called an error on Red Sox shortstop Alex Gonzalez:
As you can see, Kendrick was tagged out in this one as well. Of course, despite having a perfect angle on the play, Bucknor missed the call, and called Kendrick safe.
As bad as the umpiring was, however, the Red Sox can't really blame them for their loss. In the end, the Sox scored zero runs. I don't know about you, but I've never seen a team win a game without scoring a single run.
If the Red Sox want to salvage a split in Anaheim, they'll need to bring their bats to Game 2 against Jered Weaver. The umpires can do whatever they want, but if the Sox only manage to get 4 hits, they'll probably lose again.
