Looking for a Spark: Sox-O’s Gamer V
The Red Sox have kept on winning — 14-6 in their last 20 — but their last 10 games have featured some low-scoring affairs. In the four games leading up to the 11-3 pasting of Washington's bullpen, the Sox scored just 12 runs. In the five since, they've scored just 15.
But if you can't go home to get a tonic for a struggling offense, there are always the Orioles — against whom the Sox are 4-0 this season, and against whom they have another 14 games to play this season. Hopefully Baltimore will oblige, and they start by pushing Jason Berken (6.32 ERA) to the hill against Jon Lester, who has a spectacular 2.78 ERA in his last seven starts and a 2.03 ERA in his last five outings against Baltimore.
