BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- More often than not, Red Sox win series. It's why they're 44-and-22 and a half-game behind the Yankees for the best record in baseball.
But, Alex Cora's Sox dropped two of three to those other Sox from Chicago finish a homestand.
"You just gotta keep winning series," Cora said. "We did a good job this week here at home, 3 and 3, I think it was. We gotta go on the road and win the three-game series, and three series that we're gonna play on the road."
Cora's group will start an 11-day, 10-game road trip tonight in Baltimore with the first of three, before stops in Seattle and Minnesota.
Boston's 21-and-11 on the road--second-best in the American League behind Houston--and the Orioles just stink. They're coming off a sweep in Toronto and they've lost 11 of 13 to plummet to an MLB-worst 19-and-45. They also have one of the worst offenses in the game.
Sox have already taken five of six from the O's this year.
Steven Wright will take the mound opposite Dylan Bundy. Wright's 2-and-0 with a 1.57 ERA. Bundy's ERA is a smidge above 4. But, both righties worked seven shutout innings in their last starts. And, both have ERA's right around 5 in this matchup.
