Third Time Is the Charm

The Sox finished a sweep of the Royals, holding them to one run and 11 hits in the three game series. I would be more excited if the Royals weren't 2-12 right now, with both of those wins coming against the Sox. After the sweep, the Sox are 4-2 against KC for the year. I don't think Cleveland and Minnesota will have too hard of a time matching that record.

The Sox have gone through the rotation three times now and posted records of:


Each Sox starter got the win in this last go round and they are 9-1 in their last ten games. They have quietly become the hottest team in baseball.

Still, not everything is running on all cylinders. Their were some bad starts by Garland and Vasquez in the last ten games and Brian Anderson couldn't hit a basketball right now. But 10-5 is a nice start - even if six of the fifteen games were against KC.
