The Boston Red Sox, while they continue to boast the best record in Major League Baseball, managed to avoid their first four-game losing streak of the season with a wild win on a walk-off error against the Miami Marlins in an interleague contest in Boston Tuesday, The Miami Herald reported. On Wednesday, the Red Sox will try to parlay that victory in which they blew two leads only to come back in the bottom of the ninth on a throwing error by the Marlins’ JT Riddle, into a new winning streak when they meet the Marlins again in an interleague game that will live stream from Fenway Park.
The Red Sox now hold a 6 1/2-game lead over the New York Yankees in the American League East in the MLB standings, with a record of 91-42, while the Marlins are merely hoping to build some momentum heading into next season, with only 53 wins and 80 losses as they occupy the cellar in the National League East.
While the Red Sox await the return of Cy Young favorite Chris Sale from the disabled list, though the date of his comeback remains unknown according to CBS Sports, they send another lefty to the mound in former Cy Young winner David Price, who faces the Marlins on Wednesday.
