Red Sox Notch Seventh Straight Win, Come Back On Twinkies, 4-2

Text to Henry Kanter on April 5th
After dropping their first three games of the season, your Boston Red Sox have gone on a tear—winning their next seven games. Today, they overcame a 2-0 deficit in snowy Minneapolis to gain their fifth come-from-behind win of the season, 4-2. The Boston heroes were: Bobby Dalbec (2 RBI doubles); Hunter Renfroe (solo HR); Rafael Devers (solo HR) and a gutsy Martin Perez

After the opening series losses, I texted my Fenway seat partner, Henry Kanter, that the Sox would "only" need to rattle off 13 straight victories to go 10 games over .500 (see image). Little did I know that my prediction would need just 6 more consecutive wins to come true! This actually could become an interesting Red Sox season. Who knew?
