BOSTON -- Offense hasn't been a problem for the Red Sox through 81 games, but Boston's struggles on the mound are threatening to undo all the good the team is doing at the plate.
At the midway point, the Red Sox (44-37) have scored a league-leading 451 runs, a total they added to handsomely Sunday in a 10-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels.
However, their mediocre pitching -- a 4.49 team ERA that ranks 11th in the AL -- might prove troublesome entering their three-game series with the Texas Rangers that starts Monday.
