After another disappointing loss to potential Cy Young winner Zack Greinke and the Kansas City Royals, the Boston Red Sox are eager to take the last two games and head in to the highly anticipated three-game weekend series against the New York Yankees in the Bronx. The Yanks just clinched a playoff spot last night with their win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and hope to earn the AL division to finish out the season. The Red Sox are six games behind New York in the division standings and seven games up on the Texas Rangers for the Wild Card.
In light of last night’s loss, Boston aside from letting up five runs in the first inning shutout Kansas City for the rest of the game. Victor Martinez kept his hit streak alive at 21 which set the bar for all switch-hitters in Red Sox history. “I just think a hitter like Victor, sometimes good hitters like that run into streaks,” said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. “He could line out four times. Hitters like Victor, you’re going to see that from time to time just because they’re good.”
Boston is scheduled to take on the Royals tonight and tomorrow before facing the Yankees on Friday. Josh Beckett will get the start for tonight’s game.
