MLB: Boston Red Sox at Minnesota Twins Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox have obviously been hot for a few series now, having completed a pair of sweeps before even starting this series in Minnesota. The Twins were supposed to be the big test, but now that Boston has taken the first three, are we looking at the start of something special? (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

The player who probably made the biggest impact across the two games yesterday, including a game-saving catch to end the first one, was Alex Verdugo. The outfielder is very excited about the team they have right now. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

It’s not just that the Red Sox are playing so well, either. They are also getting some very early help from the rest of the division, which is struggling. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Another big storyline from the great doubleheader on Wednesday? Alex Cora got win number 200. (Alexandra Francisco; NESN)

We’re going to see more experimentation in the Atlantic League this year, including with how far the mound is from the plate. (Jayson Stark; The Athletic)
