Red Sox have a tough road ahead

The Boston Red Sox have been outscored 30-12 during their 5 game losing streak, including scoring 0 runs in their last 24 innings.

In their last 2 games, they have gone 8-76 as a team (.105 BA) and over their last 5 games, they're 30-191 (.157 BA).

All of these games have been on the road, where they have a .253 average, which is much lower than the .275 average they have at home. They average 5.7 runs per game at home and 4.7 on the road.

Their offense can't get much worse than that, so it should turn around soon. Still, they have:
  • 4 games at Detroit
  • 6 game roadtrip to Texas and Toronto
  • 10 game homestand with the Yankees, White Sox and Blue Jays

It is a bad time of the year to be struggling and they have lot of tough series in the next few weeks.
