Red Sox: Top five performances of opening series vs Pittsburgh Pirates
Baseball is back, and all is good with the Boston Red Sox so far. In the first series of the season, these plays and performances stood out the most.
Boy, it sure is a good feeling to see baseball scores online. Coinciding with the emergence of warmer weather in colder parts of the country, the start of the Boston Red Sox season is enough to warm all baseball fans up, regardless of geographical area.
While small in sample size as many teams are still completing their first series while others — Chicago and Cincinnati are trying to get games in — some gaudy and impressive performances have been had thus far to start the season.
Nothing too drastic has happened yet either, no team has lost every member of the rotation or lost someone to a freak injury. The Red Sox sure do have the flu bug going around and the Cardinals’ Stephen Piscotty was a ball magnet on Tuesday night, but it’s been rather calm thus far.
In what follows, you’ll find slides giving an overview of five of the top performances of the season thus far, both at the plate, on the mound and stellar web gems considered.
