Thursday was Jackie Robinson Day throughout MLB and such a meaningful day is especially important to Alex Cora. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)

The Red Sox came just shy of winning their 10th-straight game yesterday, but the real story may have been some of the afternoon’s oddities. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

Even though its over, we can still dive deeper into a stretch of baseball in which the Red Sox looked invincible. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

But as we learned on Thursday (and during that 0-3 start we don’t need to talk about ever again), the Red Sox aren’t perfect. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

This Red Sox team doesn’t adhere to the gospel of the three true outcomes. (Alex Reimer; WEEI/Audacy)

It might not have changed the outcome ultimately, but Alex Verdugo’s work at the plate in the eighth inning on Thursday swung the momentum in a major way. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)

Garrett Whitlock has been great to start the season and he’s really impressed with his changeup. (Rob Bradford; WEEI/Audacy)

Connor Seabold’s repertoire is coming along nicely. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Even if it won’t be exactly the same as usual, the Cape Cod Baseball League will return to business this summer. (Christopher Price; Boston Globe)

Bobby Dalbec is more than a little familiar with the Cape Cod Baseball League, having played for the Orleans Firebirds along with a long list of other current MLB players. (Jesse Pantuosco; WEEI/Audacy)
