Series By The Numbers: Rangers @ Red Sox
By Jared Book
Well was that fun, or what? The Rangers went into Fenway Park and swept the Red Sox in two games in which the offense (finally) showed signs of life. Even better news is that the starting pitching was great and the bullpen did what it needed to do (despite a little scare in yesterday’s game). The Rangers are now riding a six game winning streak entering a four game series with another AL favourite in Detroit who have a pretty solid offense as well. Oh, and the reigning MVP and Cy Young Winner.
