Getting Back on Track!
Today the Red Sox finally finished their 4 game series against the Orioles, and they swept them! The Red Sox are now 7-6, their first time above .500 since the first game of the season! They now are tied with the Yankees in 2nd place, behind the streaking Blue Jays, who are at 10-4, and show no signs of stopping. But, the Red Sox played spectacularly in every game of the series as they won 10-8, 6-4, 2-1, and 12-1. Today, Justin Masterson, a questionable starter pitched very solidly and won the game. The Sox have had good pitching all season but it was in this series that the bats really came alive, as they hit several homers and in every game (except for game 3) they scored at least 6 runs, their pitching was strong too (except for game 1) as they gave up no more than 4 runs in any games. The Orioles were looking good at 6-3, and the Red Sox were 3-6. But now the Sox are 7-6, and the Orioles are 6-7, as their bad luck seems to have restarted.
