Red Sox Pre-Cap Podcast: Recapping the Orioles, Previewing the Twins

A look back at the Red Sox sweep of the Rays and their upcoming series in Baltimore.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that was a fun weekend. After sweeping the Rays in the last series, the offense continued on their dominant streak against the Orioles this past weekend. J.D. Martinez, Rafael Devers, and Christian Vázquez were on fire against Matt Harvey, Bruce Zimmerman, and Jorge López and the rest of the Orioles pitching staff.

Meanwhile, on the other side, Eduardo Rodriguez returned to the rotation for the first time since 2019 and looked great. Garrett Richards and Nick Pivetta also managed to get the job done in their starts to help lead the Red Sox to three straight victories. On the other hand, we do also discuss our concern about Ottavino and some other pitchers in the bullpen.

And then we also discuss the upcoming four-game set against the Twins, which should be a great matchup between a great lineup and one that sure looks great right now, and pitching matchups such as Nathan Eovaldi versus Kenta Maeta. It should be a great week of baseball.

Be sure to join us Friday as we review that series with the Twins and get set for a four-game stint back at Fenway against the White Sox. Don’t forget to subscribe to the Over The Monster Podcast network so you never miss an episode!
