The Boston Red Sox had quite the emotional week this past week, but continued to play red hot baseball. The team has won 5 out of 6 games and are playing their second game of the double header against Kansas City as I write this. The team has been lead by excellent pitching. This coming week the Red Sox will play every game at Fenway, continuing a 10 game home stand. Here is the weekly schedule.
The Red Sox start a 3 game series against the Oakland Athletics on Monday. Starting for Oakland is A.J. Griffin, who is currently the best pitcher on their staff. He is 2-0 in his 3 starts pitching 20 innings. He has only allowed 5 runs and hitters are only hitting for a .222 average against him. Manager John Farrell will be handing the ball over to Felix Doubront who the team is looking for more consistency. Doubront is 1-0 in his 2 starts but his opponents are hitting .325 off of him. The game starts at 6:35 is is on NESN.
This pitching match-up will make many laugh about...
