Red Sox Destroying At Fenway Park

Astros Red Sox Dallas Keuchel David Price

The Boston Red Sox offense has been staggeringly good during their current six-game winning streak at home. The BoSox have scored 60 runs in their past six games at Fenway while allowing just 24. The Red Sox start a four-game series with the Houston Astros in front of the Fenway faithful Thursday.
