Boston Red Sox's Latest Performance :
The Boston Red Sox are in hot pursuit of their third consecutive American League East crown behind a pair of superstar sluggers in Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez and the hot hand of pitcher Chris Sale. In the All-Star game, Sale was clocking in fastballs just over the century mark, the fastest pitch he’s thrown since 2010. At the plate, Martinez led the league the first half with 29 homers and should continue his monster season the second half as well.
Baltimore Orioles's Latest Performance :
The Baltimore Orioles are not the worst team in baseball…they’re the second worst. At least this week. They spent the first half of the season trading places with the Kansas City Royals for the worst record in MLB. Baltimore did manage to win their final two games before the All-Star game solidifying their second to last place position in the major leagues. To put their season into perspective, the Orioles are a whopping 39.5 games back behind their series rival Boston Red Sox.
