Red Sox Expect Sellout Streak To End Tonight Against Orioles
The Red Sox project that barring highly unexpected walkup sales, tonight's game against the Orioles at Fenway Park will not sell out, marking the first game there not to do so since May 15, 2003. Since then, the club has posted an MLB-record 794 straight regular-season sellouts, including Monday's home opener, and 820 games overall counting the postseason. But three straight non-playoff seasons, including last season's 93-loss disaster, have depressed ticket demand. The club is expecting a turnout tonight of slightly above 30,000, roughly 7,000 below capacity.
