The Boston Red Sox are 20-10 against teams below .500. They are 7-7 against teams .500 or better.
Boston looks to continue the trend of beating up on subpar teams this week when it hosts the Rockies for three games (Tuesday-Thursday).
The Colorado Rockies are playing well enough to reside in second in the National League West but that isn’t good enough to snag a spot in the postseason if it began today. The Rockies took a step back in an 8-3 defeat at Fenway Park for their 5th loss in six contests. Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa was charged with seven runs on nine hits and three BB over 3.1 frames to absorb the loss. The Rockies offense couldn’t keep pace on six hits and a walk with Gerardo Parra driving in a pair while Charlie Blackmon went solo. Chad Bettis is shooting for back to back wins when he opposes the Red Sox for the first time in his career. Bettis knocked off the Cardinals 3-1 on the road last time out with the lone run scored on five hits and a pair of BB over 6.2 innings.
