Despite a rare loss on Sunday to the Tampa Bay Rays, the Boston Red Sox have been cruising through their Summer schedule. Boston took 2 of 3 from the Rays over the weekend and currently stand at 88-37 on the year with a 9.5 game lead over the Yankees in the AL East. The Boston Red Sox are on pace to win 114 games this season! Highlights from the weekend series with Tampa include David Price’s 13th win of the year and Martinez’ MLB leading 38th HR.
The home stand continues for Boston on Monday night when they welcome the Cleveland Indians to Fenway Park for a 4 game series. It will be a battle of division leaders as the Indians come into town with a 71-52 record, good for tops in the AL Central. A match up with Cleveland also brings in former manager Terry Francona who of course guided the Red Sox to their historic 2004 World Series win.
Monday night’s game features Porcello (BOS 15-5) vs Kluber (CLE 15-6). The Red Sox will send Eovaldi (5-4), Johnson (4-3) and Price (13-6) to the hill for the remaining 3 games to face Bieber (6-2), Carrasco (15-6) and Plutko (4-3) for Cleveland.
