Follow @mattattheheraldThere was good news for Red Sox Nation this week when Boston won a road series, beating Chicago two-out-of-three in frigid conditions at U.S. Cellular Field. The bad news, however, is the way the Red Sox won the games. One win came in extra innings with a utility infielder on the mound for the White Sox, another saw another brilliant performance by Jon Lester nearly wasted, and Mike Napoli almost ruined his hand trying to slide.
The offense still hasn’t looked like the 2013 edition, but the pitching has been good enough to win. The Red Sox now look to gain a little momentum from the series, as fluky as it was, and come home to Fenway Park, where they will try and reclaim their dominance at home with another series victory.
