The Red Sox had not swept a three-game series from the Rangers in Texas since Nixon was in office. And no, we don’t mean Trot.

But the team with baseball’s best record continues to rewrite history. Sunday’s 6-5 victory before 40,323 at Rangers Ballpark was the third successive comeback for the Red Sox, and gave them their first three-game sweep in Arlington since Aug. 20-22, 1973.

“It’s not easy [to sweep],” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. “Because normally, like we did, you go through the first couple of games using the guys at the end of your bullpen.”

After the Red Sox swept the Rangers, the Yankees were swept by the Angels putting the so called “empire” 12 1/2 games behind the Boston Red Sox. So far out of the 49 games the Sox have played, those 15 games that we lost were hard to swallow, however the Yankees have almost lost double the amount of games that the Red Sox have lost so put it in perspective.

The Sox have to prepare for the Indians tomorrow where we will get to see Trot Nixon who was traded during the off season.
