The Boston Red Sox are approaching the halfway point of the 2009 season and have met expectations thus far. However, the Seattle Mariners are trying to do something that has never been done in the franchise's 32-year history.

Seattle has never swept a three-game series at Fenway Park and the Red Sox will rely on Jon Lester to make sure that this is avoided again. It's bad enough the Mariners ended the Sox seven-game consecutive winning series. 
Also this week, the New York Yankees have crept up in the standings and decreased the gap between Boston in the AL East standings. This week is huge for the Red Sox with a home-game stretch before the All-Star Break.
Another note: This is the first time since opening week that the Sox have had a losing week.
