Red Sox looking to go 40-games over .500 with a win tonight

 

 

STATE OF THE SOX: The Red Sox lead MLB with 70 wins and own the majors’ highest winning percentage (.693).

>>> The Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 games, 14-2 in their last 16, and 19-4 in their last 23…They went 13-13 from 4/21-5/18, but they are 40-16 (.714) since then.

BOSTON’S BEST: The Red Sox’ 70 wins are tied for their most ever through 101 games, having started 70-29-2 in 1946…The 1946 club lost its 102nd and 103rd games.

>>> BOS is 15.0 games ahead of its 2017 pace (55-46) and 14.0 ahead of its 2016 pace (56-45) through 101 games.

GROUPS OF 10: The Red Sox were the 1st team in 2018 to reach 20, 30, 40, 60, and 70 wins…Prior to this season, the last time BOS was the 1st team to reach 70 wins was 2007 (the Sox and Braves reached 70 wins on the same day in 2013).

MODERN SUCCESS: The Red Sox are the 21st team in the Modern Era (1900-pres.) to win 70+ of their first 101 games…18 of the previous 20 won their league’s pennant.

>>> The only other teams since 1947 to win at least 70 of their first 101 games are the 2017 Dodgers, 2001 Mariners, 1998 Yankees, 1970 Reds, and 1969 Orioles.

JUNIOR CIRCUIT: In his last 20 games, Jackie Bradley Jr. has hit .314 with 18 RBI and a .921 OPS (22-for-70, 8 2B, 3 HR)…The Sox are 23-1 when Bradley has at least 1 XBH (12-0 since 6/1), and 21-2 when he records at least 1 RBI.
