All it took was a weekend! The Red Sox moved from the bottom of the pack to third in the AL East. They are now 10 – 11 which is half a game behind .500!
If you were worried at the beginning of the season, no need to be worried now. In the past 10 games, only two teams in the MLB have 8 or more wins… the Boston Red Sox (5 straight wins) and the Florida Marlins (1 straight win), making Boston the hottest team in the MLB despite their slow start. Finally winning away games was something that plagued the team and the road record is now 5 – 7.
The next series for Boston is Tuesday 4/26/11 against the Baltimore Orioles who are now in last place with a record of 8-12.
Jed Lowrie earned a spot in the lineup after starting the season with 22 hits in 51 at bats (.431 average).
Go Sox, keep up the good work!
