Blue Jays and the AL East Recap: Week two
By Samuel Bruce
Red Sox Continue to Plague the Jays
Boston Red Sox: 6-5
The Boston Red Sox continued to surge against the Blue Jays this week. Winning two against them in Boston to push them above .500 for the week.
In addition to once again having the Jays’ number, the Red Sox handed the Orioles their first loss of the season. This spoiled a potential sweep, and Baltimore’s undefeated run.
The Red Sox once again had the bats this week, and this time their offence was backed by dominant starts from David Price and Rick Porcello, finally helping to to address the early concerns about their starting rotation.
The bullpen continued it’s dominance, and despite a hiccup from Craig Kimbrel early in the week, has looked like one of the most dominant relief staffs in baseball.
Someone had to stop the Orioles, so the Red Sox did. Out of the gate they look like a strong contender if their offense can keep it up.
