Steve Pearce has had a long journey around the league in his major-league career, but a night like Thursday makes it all worth it. (Tara Sullivan; Boston Globe)

Jackie Bradley Jr. asked a beat reporter to come to him with his best catches on video so he could rank them. Chad Jennings was up to the task. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

Although he’s still feeling some effects from being hit in the hand, Xander Bogaerts doesn’t feel as though a DL stint is a realistic option at the moment. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

Chris Sale is already on the DL, but it shouldn’t last long. In the meantime, he’ll have to settle for being named the American League pitcher of the month. (Manny Randhawa; MLB.com)

After the Red Sox opted not to make a move to boost the bullpen, that unit is going to be under extra scrutiny moving forward. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald)

This is a team with a (deservedly) bad reputation on the basepaths, but while there are still some mistakes here and there they have been better of late. (Bill Koch; Providence Journal)
