Boston Red Sox Bats Need To Wake the Bleep Up

Amanda BrunoCorrespondent IApril 7, 2017
The Boston Red Sox are sending the right guy to the mound tonight, looking to end a demanding three-game skid, which has cost them sole first place in the American League East.
Josh Beckett is 6-0 after a loss, and is shooting for lucky number seven.
Boston has suffered an offense implosion over the past three games, all losses. The three runs they scored in Monday's 6-3 setback were the team's highest offensive output of that stretch.
Scoring three runs at best is not exactly going to win games and the bats need to wake up now before it's too late.
There are several guys in slumps who include Jason Bay who is 2-for-15 since the All-Star Break, Jason Varitek (2-for-19), and J.D. Drew has managed one hit in his last 26 at-bats. Dustin Pedroia is the only player in the lineup hitting above .300 (.302).
The New York Yankees are hot, winning its last four games, and are 7-3 in its last 10, while the Red Sox are 6-4. One game can make all of the difference. New York has won its last three with the score of 2-1, a first since 1991.
The Yankees are hosting Baltimore in the Bronx followed by Oakland for a long four-game series.
