So the Red Sox seemed to bounce back nicely from an embarrassing series with the Rockies, a team bad enough that anything but a sweep would've been a disappointment, never mind losing two out of three. The sox seemed to have gotten their act together and managed to sweep the Giants thanks to a shutout performance in the second game by Daisuke to preserve the 1 run lead for the win. The other two wins are thanks to the Red Sox offense finally clicking. The run support put up against Morrisson was quite impressive. Everything seems to be looking up for the sox right? RIGHT?
Well, here's the thing folks. The Sox have been doing well, but the Yankees have been doing better. They have won 11 of their last 12 games and the upcoming competition isn't exactly "stiff" playing their next 9 games against Colorado, San Francisco and Baltimore (combined record 94-112 .456). The sox have been doing well, but they're about to face some tough competitors with 9 games away against the Braves, Padres and Mariners (combined record 112-92 .549). This really has the potential to be rough on the sox's ample lead in the AL East over the Yankees.
