Boston's 9th Batter Better Than Some Cleanup Hitters

The Red Sox are getting some solid production from their 9th spot in the batting order. For the season their OPS is .948, 122 points better than the 2nd best team, Texas. They've scored 17 runs, which is just about 10 percent of all runs scored by the Sox this season, which is a higher percentage than most teams.

With Pedroia finally hitting, this should only get better. Some say you can't expect Cora to continue raking like he has, but if Tito keeps managing the situations the right way it's certainly possible to see him hit .350ish.
