BALTIMORE -- It was only 87 mph, but getting hit in the stomach with a baseball is never fun. Eduardo Nunez can attest to that. Nunez felt the pain of such an instance in the 12th inning of the Red Sox' 2-0 win over the Orioles, getting plunked by Mychel Givens directly in the midsection. The hit-...
