Sox Set To Be 6th MLB Team With +100 Run Differential

It's hard to believe, but only 39 regular season games remain in the 2017 season. As the Red Sox get set for a big four-game series with the Tribe in "The Mistake By The Lake", they are poised to reach a pretty big milestone. Sitting at a +99 run differential, Boston can become just the sixth MLB team to go over the 100-mark on this crucial stat. Last season, the Red Sox finished the season with a +184 differential on their way to 93 wins and a division title. Presently, they are on-pace to collect 93 victories once again and enjoy a five-game bulge over The Bronx Embalmers. Last season, they ended up with a four game advantage over both the Orioles and the Blue Jays. This series is also an opportunity to show the Indians that the 2016 playoff debacle was a fluke.
