How's this for a third-inning performance by right-hander Alfredo Aceves of the Boston Red Sox: Boston Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves, who had a dismal start in a 13-0 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday. The Red Sox have optioned right-hander Alfredo Aceves to Triple-A Pawtucket. In the small picture, Aceves had a memorably bad inning. After the game, during an introspective session with reporters, Aceves took responsibility for what happened. In the really big picture, he's been terrible for the Red Sox since 2012 started, as Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports: He allowed six runs and three hits, he walked three batters, he committed two balks, he was late covering first base and on the same play he made a throwing error.
