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

In last night’s stress-free victory, J.D. Martinez got the Red Sox’s offense rolling, which is something that did not go unnoticed by Alex Cora. (Sean T. McGuire; NESN)

There is still room for improvement for Martinez, even though he’s bounced back from a tough 2020 and had a strong overall campaign in 2021. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Nathan Eovaldi was in ace mode against the Orioles on Wednesday. That’s a great sign, especially if the Red Sox get to the postseason. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

Since the beginning of the campaign, Eovaldi has fit the ace mold for the Red Sox. (Jenna Ciccotelli; NESN)

Speaking of starters having good seasons, Nick Pivetta is making the most of his first full stint with the Red Sox. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

Even though things look a bit less bleak today than they did after Tuesday’s loss, the Red Sox still need all hands on deck and that obviously includes Garrett Whitlock. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Ramon Vazquez will remain the first base coach for as long as the Red Sox play this season. (Steve Gardner; USA Today)
