Fenway South? Not anymore. Not in a while actually.
The Baltimore Orioles just took three out of four from the visiting first place Boston Red Sox and moved to within 1.5 games of AL East leaders. This isn’t some sort of new phenomenon. The Orioles have won six straight series against the Red Sox and 14 of their last 19 games.
They’re 5-2 against Boston this season with a +7 run differential (for those wondering about that fun statistic). Last season, the O’s were 13-5 against the Red Sox with a +28 RD.
Since Buck Showalter became the Orioles manager, the O’s are 29-20 against the Red Sox.
It’s insane how dominant they’ve been against Boston. Thanks, Robert Andino.
