June 25: the last time the Red Sox pitching staff held a team to fewer than 6 runs in a game. This is game #8 in this stretch so far. On the flip side, they’ve scored 8 runs in 6 of them. This is bringing me back to the 1970’s.

8 such games of allowing 6+ runs is tied for the second longest stretch in team history, in 1993-4 and 1925. The all-time franchise record is 9, by the 1976 BoSox, so that's quite the impressive memory.

Quite a few more to go until the MLB record of 11, shared by such immortal teams as the 2003 Tigers and 1962 Mets, in addition to the 1925 Phillies (a similar stretch of the year to boot: 6/27 to 7/6).

Tom Joad weeps.
Turning the game off then was the best decision I could have made-- I stopped jinxing the Sox, watched about 10 minutes of the Celtics summer league game, which was pretty entertaining, then watched an old Frasier rerun, then turned the Sox back on and they were up 10-6. I was in a great mood, so it was a real win-win. I'm fully prepared to tun off today's game too, if necessary.
