Hey, Red Sox fans, let this sink in: your team is the fifth one since the American League was established (1901) to snare at least 14 wins in their first 17 games. We are looking at historic stuff, here. Last night, Boston laid waste to the over-hyped Angels yet again—a 9-0 drubbing at 'The Big A'. Rick Porcello is quietly putting together a brilliant start—winning his fourth game by going six solid innings, giving up no earned runs, while striking out six and walking none. His ERA is now 1.40. On the offensive side, Mitch Moreland went 3-4 and drove in four runs, while J.D. Martinez raised his average to .313 on his 4-5 night (including his 4th HR). Rafael Devers collected two hits—one of which was his first career Grand Slam. Right now, The Carmine Hose are a juggernaut—on hitting, pitching and defense. As Bill Belichick might say, they are excelling in all three phases of the game.
