The Boston Red Sox have done it. With a three-game win streak and winners of seven of their last ten, the team has reset their run differential to zero. Also, the 9-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox brought the team to 17-18. They’re a mere game away from .500.
Boston’s offense was fairly sluggish for most of the game, as the game was pitted 2-2 entering the top 8th. Rick Porcello pitched another strong outing, with six innings of two earned run baseball. Equally impressive, the right-hander struck out seven and walked none.
With that said, the offense was letting him down. Of course, that is until the 8th inning rolled around. The Red Sox put seven runs on the board, highlighted by a Xander Bogaerts‘ grand slam. He has homered in two straight games.
The Boston Red Sox are winners of six of their last seven. They take on the Baltimore Orioles Monday at 7:05 p.m. eastern. It is a very winnable series in quest of getting over the .500 hump. Josh Smith will make his first big-league start since 2016 for Boston in Game One.
