BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Red Sox are good. Really good. Best in baseball, actually.

Boston's the first club in the majors to 70 wins after yesterday's 9-1 taming of the Tigers in Detroit, and the Sox are winning at a ridiculous .693 clip. That's helped them to a four-and-a-half-game lead on the defending-champion Astros for the best record in the sport. When you win 19 of 23, that'll help your cause.

The 2016 All-Star's hitting .314 with a .921 OPS his last 20 games, with three homers, eight doubles, and 18 RBI.

Jackie Bradley Junior led the offense with a three-run homer yesterday, and he's happy to be on such a successful team, but the outfielder isn't taking anything for granted.

"We're focusing on wins as a team, I think that what it pretty much boils down to," Bradley said. "Nobody's trying to be all about themselves, I think everyone collectively is what's making this team click."

The Sox are getting it done everywhere. They're 34-and-13 at Fenway, and 36-and-18 on the road, which is where they'll be tonight when they play the first of three in Baltimore at 7:05 p.m. Orioles sit an MLB-worst 28-and-72. Rick Porcello's set to oppose Kevin Gausman on the mound.
