This Red Sox team is on absolute fire right now, the only thing that’ll slow up this team is the All Star break. The Sox have won 6 games in a row and 8 of their last 9. During their 6 game win streak, the Sox have scored 53 runs. Incredible.
Among the hot players has been Andrew Benintendi who is absolutely tearing it up offensively and defensively. Last night he turned in a 5-5 performance with 6 RBI and 4 runs scored. He finished a triple shy of the cycle and turned in this gem of a catch:

Then there were these two dingers!
Right after making a great catch, Andrew Benintendi hits a 3-run shot leaving him a 3B shy of the cycle #RedSox

Also props to David Price who went 6 innings and gave up zero runs. The Sox look to make it 7 in a row tonight as Doug Fister takes the mound for Boston in Texas.
Fister is making his third appearance with the Red Sox since being claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels on June 23, and he is looking for his first victory. Fister allowed three runs in each of his first two starts, and went just five innings in a Friday start at Toronto.
