3. Differing offenses. This series pits two wildly different offensive clubs against each other. Both have been among the 12 best run-producing teams in the majors, and both hit for high average. The Orioles, of course, ride the home run ball and lead the majors this month with 42. They also lead the AL this month with an .861 OPS. The Red Sox, on the other hand, sit toward the bottom of the major league rankings in homers, but they get on base with the best of them, are among the speediest clubs in the league and scratch out runs creatively with some small ball. Which approach proves better this weekend will be worth watching.
