The Rockies are gaining revenge for a World Series loss against the Red Sox, as they look to complete a interleague sweep.
Boston Red Sox at Colorado Rockies
Boston lost its fourth straight road game on Wednesday night in deflating fashion, with closer Jonathan Papelbon serving up a walk off home run. “Just fell behind and had to throw another flat fastball across the zone,” said Papelbon. The bullpen came into last night’s contest with a 2-0 record and 1.24 ERA in its previous 10 games. The Red Sox can just hope to avoid being swept on Thursday night, as its streak of winning nine straight interleague series is over. Boston ranks fourth all-time with a 137-106 interleague record and leads the Majors with a 92-48 mark since 2003. The offense has banged out 10 or more hits in six of its last eight games and nine of 11 since June 10, during which the club is batting .317 with 76 runs scored.
