The Boston Red Sox came out of the gate stumbling, but have shown marked improvement as of late, with the offense leading the charge.
One stat showed the discrepancy between the Red Sox offense from the beginning of the season versus the last couple of weeks.
Boston started 10-19, dropping all the way to last place in the American League East while hitting a cool .228/.279/.342 and averaging just 3.27 runs per game.
Since May 10, the Sox have gone 9-3 and put up a .285/.348/.506 slash line while averaging a much-improved 6.58 runs per game.
Many predicted that the Red Sox would be able to cover up some deficiencies if their lineup performed as expected, which seems to be the case over the last couple of weeks.
The Red Sox will look to their bats hot when they head to Chicago to take on the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field on Tuesday. First pitch is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. ET following an hour of pregame coverage, and you can watch it all on NESN.
