There’s still hope for the Red Sox.

After a struggling start to the second half, the Red Sox ran on all cylinders in a four-game sweep against the Texas Rangers over the weekend. It seems that the boys in Boston aren’t going down without a fight. 

Thursday brought a walk-off finish after what seemed to be another blown lead. A four run rally in the ninth inning boosted the Red Sox into the win column as Rob Refsnyder singled into left field to walk it off. Final score of 9-8.

The highlight of Friday’s game was the first career home run for Connor Wong. The bullpen showed up to play with zero earned runs over six innings. They went on to win 9-1.

Saturday night brought the first major league win for Brayan Bello in a 5-3 victory. Bello was stellar in his fifth career start, going six innings with zero earned runs and five strikeouts. His ERA for the season is now at 5.91.

Today’s 5-2 win capped off the sweep with the debut of top prospect, Triston Casas. Trevor Story and Xander Bogaerts were unstoppable at the plate in today’s game. Trevor Story launched a three run home run in the first inning to lead the way, finishing the day just a triple shy of the cycle. Xander Bogaerts is red hot right now in general, posting a slash line of .536/.581/.821 his last seven games. Red Sox Prospect Triston Casas made his Major League debut today while also collecting his first major league hit with an infield single.

After today’s victory, the Red Sox are now within 7.5 games of a wild card spot. There is a light at the end of the tunnel for this season, but the window of opportunity is closing. The Red Sox need to play perfect baseball for even a chance of an appearance in October.
