Red Sox home vs road games: 6/16
Arguably no team was more affected by the postponement of the first six games than the Red Sox. Each of the first two series was to be played in Fenway Park, including three contests against the lowly Orioles. Fortunately for the Red Sox, all six of those games will be made up, three of which by way of doubleheaders and three in a series at the end of the season.
Still, the loss of six home games will leave the Red Sox with an extremely difficult April schedule. Sixteen of their 22 games will take place on the road, including the first three in Yankee Stadium. As common in the first month of the season, many of their games will be against their AL East rivals. Over half of their games will come against the Blue Jays, Rays, and Yankees, each of whom won over 90 games last season.
The only bright spots on the Red Sox’s April schedule are two series against AL Central bottom-feeders Twins and Tigers and the lowly Orioles. Still, the combination of long road trips and difficult series against talented division rivals leave the Red Sox with a grueling April schedule.
