It was kind of a down power week for the Boston Red Sox who were outscored by opponents and also trying to figure out how to manufacture runs in Chicago. 
The White Sox are doing a number on their counterparts as they have put up 17 unanswered runs in the first two games of this four-game series. 
Boston has only scored three times (two in the first game) and need an answer fast in order to keep ahead in the American League Wild Card Race.
The Red Sox took two out of three from the Tampa Bay Rays earlier this week, which was huge at the time making the Rays chances of securing a playoff spot even slimmer as they sit six games back.
The Baltimore Orioles did the Sox a great favor by beating the Texas Rangers Saturday who are two games back in the WC and Tampa Bay fell again to the Detroit Tigers.
