It was just seven games ago where the Red Sox were preparing to host the Yankees for a three-game series at Fenway Park prior to the All-Star break and were just five games back of the Yankees in the American League East -- winning four straight and eight of 10. Now, seven games and an All-Star break later, the Red Sox have lost six of seven games and are now nine games behind the Yankees, the most games since June 27. Monday might have been the lowest point, as the Sox were swept in a doubleheader by the Angels, 11-1 and 7-3, as the Angels completed a four-game sweep. In arguably the biggest two series' of the season with the trade deadline looming, the team has played their worst baseball in well over a month. It isn't just one area either, all aspects of the team aren't getting it done and the numbers are staggering: -- In the four game series with the Angels, the Red Sox were outscored 22-4, including being shutout in the first two games of the series. They hit one home run, compared to the Angels' nine. -- The team's five-game losing streak is currently the longest streak in the majors. -- In the their last seven games, Red Sox starters have an ERA of 6.32. -- Over the last seven games, the Red Sox are hitting .180 with runners in scoring position (9-for-50). Overall for the season, the team is hitting .245. -- Since coming back from the disabled list last Friday, Dustin Pedroia is 0-for-14. -- Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramirez and Pedroia went a combined 0-for-44 in the four games against the Angels. Overall, in the last seven games, the three are hitting a combined .114 (8-for-70). -- In the four games against the Angels, the Red Sox' lone All-Star representative Brock Holt started only once. The team will now finish their seven-game road trip with three games in Houston and fortunately for them will miss American League All-Star starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel, but being nine games back and almost a week away from the trade deadline, does it even matter?
