Red Sox Keep Pace Despite Struggles
Boston Red Sox: 33-24
The Boston Red Sox continue to be one of the best teams in baseball, despite dropping four games to division foes this week.
They split a key four-game series with the Orioles to begin the week. Boston then battled the Blue Jays and came up just short, dropping a second series in a row against Toronto. The Red Sox hitting was on full display and although Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. saw their hitting streaks end, Dustin Pedroia extended his to 13 on Sunday afternoon.
The Red Sox continue to hang tough as long as their tough-as-nails batting order continues to churn out runs. The Red Sox will look for a rebound from both their rotation and their bullpen, as both saw setbacks this week.
Red Sox fall short despite battling all week, but will fight hard to keep hold of first place.
