Red Sox update

Boston's season comes down to 14 games, and eight of those are against the Orioles, who lead the season series 7-4. Those early meetings should prevent the Red Sox from looking past the Orioles again, with the New York Yankees coming back to Fenway Park for a three-game series beginning Friday. Despite getting blown out in their final two games at Yankee Stadium this weekend, the Red Sox have won 20 of their past 25 games. The Orioles haven't played Boston since July 28, which was three days before the Red Sox traded franchise shortstop Nomar Garciaparra in a four-way deal that brought them shortstop Orlando Cabrera and first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz. Since making that move, Boston is 33-13.
