Boston enjoying view from the top
Boston Red Sox: 30-20
Despite losing their weekend series to the Jays, the Red Sox enter June with sole control of the AL East. The Red Sox offence doesn’t show any signs of slowing down, getting production from every member of their starting nine and sitting near the top of the league in the majority of offensive categories.
With increased productivity from their starting rotation, the Red Sox remain every bit as imposing. Before narrowly losing to the Jays, the Red Sox took advantage of Colorado’s pitching staff, belting out 20 runs in three games.
The Red Sox saw a down week from a normally airtight bullpen, but that was mitigated by the powerful offence that Boston has found. Like the Blue Jays, the Red Sox don’t see out of division competition for quite some time, with eight games against Baltimore in the next two weeks. They’ll look to break away from the competition in that time period.
The Red Sox have a fight ahead of them, but with their powerful offence and productive rotation and bullpen, they are well equipped to solidify the lead in the AL East.
