The Boston Red Sox failed to sweep the San Diego Padres on Sunday, but they still outperformed their MLB Players’ Weekend records from the last two seasons.
Boston was 0-6 combined in Players’ Weekend games in 2018 and 2017, posting some ugly numbers at the dish and on the mound. The 2018 Sox went 0-3 while batting .219 with a 6.75 ERA. The 2017 club wasn’t any better, as Boston batted .186 to go along with a 5.33 ERA.
This year, the Red Sox went 2-1 with a .264 average and a 2.40 ERA.
