The Red Sox are in unfamiliar territory this season having been swept for the first time all year in their weekend series vs the Rays. Far from panic time, Boston would just like to end their 3 game skid right where it stands when they welcome the Miami Marlins to Fenway tonight to start a 2 game series. Despite going 4-6 in their last 10 games, the Red Sox still hold a sizable 6.5 game lead over the New York Yankees in the A.L. East. With limited games left, the math favors Boston there.
The Red Sox will send Johnson (4-3) to the hill tonight to face Urena (4-12) with Price (14-6) facing Richards (3-7) on Wednesday night. With temperatures expected in the mid 90’s it may seem like this game is being played in Miami. After tonight’s game there are only 13 home games left for the Red Sox before the Playoffs. The Sox will end the regular season with 3 games at home vs the rival New York Yankees. Boston will also host the New York Mets 9/14-9/16.
