Although the Boston Red Sox’s starting rotation hasn’t been at its sharpest in the past week or so, it hasn’t helped that their batters have been stranding runners like crazy.
Manager John Farrell addressed this concern before Thursday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, in which the Jays finished off their three-game sweep of the struggling Sox.
While leaving runners in scoring position is obviously not the goal, Farrell believes that the team is swinging their bats better and that it will eventually equate to runs.
“I think in general there’s been better at-bats overall in those run scoring situations, so at some point, I firmly believe it’ll turn,” Farrell said.
