Currently top of the American League East Division, it’s been a good first half of the season for the Boston Red Sox, who are on pace for 100 wins in the regular season.
Their record of 50-31 gives them a three-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East, who are then followed by the Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles.
