The Boston Red Sox (88-64) have won a season high seven straight games as they take game three against the Baltimore Orioles (82-70) at Camden Yards. Clay Buchholz was solid all night pitching seven strong innings and Andrew Benintendi hit his second MLB homer to lead the offense. The Red Sox now sit comfortably atop the AL East by five games over Toronto and six games over Baltimore.
With training camp ready to start tomorrow, there are some major questions going into this season for the Boston Bruins. Here are some of the big ones Bruins’ fans should keep an eye on.

The Boston Red Sox (79-62) got a decent outing from Eduardo Rodriguez, who gave up only three runs in six innings, but it was not enough against the Toronto Blue Jays (78-63). J.A. Happ went six strong giving up only two as the Blue Jays cut the AL East division lead back down to one game.
The Boston Red Sox (78-61) will play a critical series north of the border against division rival Toronto Blue Jays (77-62).
