Red Sox Offense Catching Up With Yankees'

Listed below are the top 5 offenses in all of baseball in terms of runs per game:

Cleveland: 5.58 RPG
Detroit: 5.50
NYY: 5.39
Boston: 5.38
NYM: 5.33

The top two teams reside in the AL Central and are tied for first in that division. The Wild Card will likely come from that division. The Red Sox and Yankees are in a virtual tie for RPG while the Sox have allowed 45 runs (or more than 1 RPG) fewer than the Yankees. The Red Sox have the 4th ranked ERA in baseball while the Yankees have the 26th best.
