After spending two days at Fenway, it will be good to be back at Hadlock Field tonight, to watch the hottest baseball team in New England.
The Portland Sea Dogs began the year slowly. But since the All-Star break, the Dogs are 27-12. Their current winning streak is at four, after a 7-2 win over New Britain, backed by two Bryce Brentz home runs.
Tonight, the Sea Dogs return to Hadlock for a 7 p.m. game with Binghamton. Mike MacDonald is on the mound.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox keep losing and falling farther behind. See TODAY'S COLUMN.
But there is a race in the AL East, as the Rays are now within three games of the Yankees. Here are the standings:
Rays 69-55 (3 back)
Orioles 67-57 (5)
Red Sox 59-65 (13)
Blue Jays 56-67 (15.5)
Orioles 67-57 (0.5 back)
Tigers 66-57 (1)
Angels 64-60 (3.5)
Mariners 61-64 (7)
Red Sox 59-65 (8.5)
