After Betts robs HR, JBJ shows off OF skills

Without the help of Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts, Brian Johnson wouldn't have earned his shutout over the Mariners on Saturday. Luckily for the lefty, the outfielders were up to the task in the 6-0 Red Sox win. The matchup saw a game of one-upmanship take place, as both young stars took turns creating highlight grabs to aid their pitcher.

Johnson has new indelible Fenway memory

Brian Johnson had to wait nearly five years to step back on the mound and pitch a game at Fenway Park. But in one sweet Saturday afternoon, the lefty replaced the worst memory of his professional career with his best. Johnson fired a five-hit shutout to help the Red Sox down the Mariners, 6-0, in just the third start of his career. It was his first at Fenway, at least as a Major Leaguer.

The Red Sox’s Brutal Batting

Coming into 2017, we all knew the offense wasn’t going to be as prolific as it was the season before. It’s pretty hard to score as many runs when you lose one of baseball best’s hitters in David Ortiz. But it’s not as if the new guys aren’t pulling their weight either – Moreland wasn’t going to be Ortiz, but he’s been solid thus far, and now that he’s in a starting...
