It took some time, but the AL East is somewhat organized how it usually is at this time of the year…. The Red Sox and Yankees battling for the lead, Toronto and Tampa battling for 3rd/4th and the Orioles looking up at everyone else.
The Red Sox are half a game behind the Yankees and things are looking promising. They are one of the hottest teams in baseball right now. In their last 10 games, they are 8-2 (tied for best with 4 other teams). Adrian Gonzalez is one of the hottest hitters right now (.340 batting average and 43 RBIs) and they had 20 hits in a 14 – 2 win over the Cleveland Indians last night. Jacoby Ellsbury has also been great in terms of production with stolen bases, runs scored and obp.
Things are clicking for the Sox and it’s about time. The Sox are on the road right now heading to Detroit for a 4 game series. Next month, they have a few important series with the Blue Jays, Yankees and Rays! A lot of moves in the standings are up for grabs.
If you haven’t been to a game yet, you should get some tickets… Boston Red Sox Tickets.
