After the Red Sox suffered a staggering 4-3 loss yesterday to the Rays, it was apparent the team was pressing to make something happen. Adrian Gonzalez, most of all. The first baseman, who had been such a catalyst when the Sox stumbled out of the blocks at the beginning of the season, tried to do the same as the team desperately attempted to hang on in the wild-card race. Gonzalez was stymied again by Tampa's tough pitching staff, going 0 for 2 with two strikeouts and a pair of walks.
Gonzalez preaches patience
