Where are you, Red Sox fans?
Wednesday’s night’s attendance was 31,962. Not chopped liver, but really, what’s going on here? The Red Sox are involved in a tight race. Every game is like the playoffs. They’re playing Baltimore, which prevented them from making the playoffs in 2011.
After last year’s 69 wins, this should be a joy to watch. The Sox have been one of the most consistent teams in baseball from Opening Day. No ups and downs like most of the teams they’re competing against. Steady, exciting. Thirty come-from-behind wins, including 4-3 over the Orioles Wednesday night, when the Sox scored three runs in the seventh and eighth.
Red Sox chief operating officer Sam Kennedy is anticipating another crowd in the 32,000 range Thursday night. What gives? Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
