    - Arroyo’s home run broke a 2-2 tie.
    – And 3-2 Reds ended up being the final score.

    - The Red Sox, after trading away most of their stars, actually won a series.
    – Yes, it was against the Royals, but it’s still their first series win since taking the first two games of a three-game set against Detroit–wins that came on the last two days of July.
    — Both of those series were at home, where the Red Sox are six games under .500. They’re one game over .500 on the road.
    —- And again, if you want to say “yeah, but Royals”, remember that the Royals are actually in third place and that the Red Sox have played both of the teams behind them during that stretch of failing to win a series.
