The Red Sox were swept in a 3-game series at the beginning of the month that I have mostly forgotten about. Adrian Gonzalez went 6-for-10 in the first 2 games before going 0-for-8 in the 17 inning, game 3 loss. It was a dark series for the Sox.

Don't Fall Behind: Anyone
This pitching staff is not that great with the exception of closer, Jim Johnson. The Orioles lead the majors in home runs. The Sox need to take that away from them and give these pitchers much less breathing room. If the Red Sox let Baltimore pitching gain a slight advantage, this series will go by way of the last.
How we see it goin' down
The Red Sox are a much better team this time around and the Orioles are still surprisingly good. Red Sox pitching will be able to control the Baltimore offense this time and the Red Sox will keep up their winning ways and take 2 of 3.
