The Red Sox completed the sweep of the Baltimore Orioles yesterday and continued their 6 game win streak into the All Star break. Boston is 1.0 games up on the Yankees.
Boston players heading to the All Star game include: David Ortiz, Adrian Gonzalez, Jacoby Ellsbury, Kevin Youkilis, Josh Beckett and Jon Lester. Boston is tied with the 2nd most all stars from one team. The Yankees have the most with 8.
Boston will hopefully keep momentum on their side and continue establishing a lead between themselves and the rest of the AL East. After the All Star break, Boston will travel to Tampa and then Baltimore.
