Final Stretch For Red Sox
The Red Sox are putting the finishing touches on what was clearly a disappointing season for this squad. Boston currently stands in last place in the AL East with a 73-81 record. They have officially been eliminated from the playoffs. Boston has 5 more games at Fenway Park including tonight’s game with Baltimore and 8 games left overall with their weekend trip to Toronto.
The biggest disappointment for Boston this season has been pitching. Their team ERA of 4.54 lands them 13th out of 15 AL teams and the absence of a healthy Chris Sale was evident. Offensively the Red Sox had a pretty good season with a team batting average of .259, good enough for 2nd in the AL. Not much in the way of power number this season with 148 HR so far (9th in the AL). Devers was a top contributor for Boston this season with 89 RBI, 40 doubles and 27 HR’s.
Red Sox tickets are available for all remaining games at Fenway with the best deals (tickets as low as $7) of the season at Ace Ticket. Rich Hill is expected to take the mound for Boston tonight.
