Over the course of the last several games, the team has only allowed eight runs, while scoring 34 of their own, showing that the offense is clearly clicking at the right time as well.
While I think it would be a bit premature to say that the team is set to tear up the rest of baseball, there are still some positives that can be drawn from the performance of the pitching staff.
The obvious positive is what we saw from Jon Lester. His complete game, one-run performance was impressive.
The next obvious positive was seeing Josh Beckett come out and throw seven scoreless innings against the Seattle Mariners, striking out nine.
The blemish on the record comes at the hands of Clay Buchholz. While he did not pitch poorly, and the Red Sox were able to win, he did give up four runs in 6.1 innings in a game that the team needed to put up seven runs to win.
